Every year at the Academy Awards a video runs paying tribute to those lost in the field of entertainment. At this time I would like to pay tribute to friends I have lost this year that significantly contributed to the world of the automobile. They include with my sincerest respect: David Davis Jr. Jerry York, Ben Bidwell, Leo Kelmenson and Marge Peterson.
To their families and many friends please accept my heartfelt sympathy.
At this time I would like to also extend my sincerest wishes for a holiday filled with contentment, loving memories and the promise of wonderful things to come.

30 years ago when President Reagan asked me to head the restoration of The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, I never dreamed I would eventually be an honoree. Last week I was honored with with a wonderful tribute by The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation. The other honorees that day included Martina Navratilova, Senator George Mitchell and Joe Torre. I think I can speak for them when I say we were overwhelmed with the sentiments not just about us but for our parents who saw the promise of America.
