Q: What’s your favorite memory of Notre-Dame de Paris?

While visiting Paris with my parents in 1964, I fell in love with the Great Lady. As Catholics, we had already visited other cathedrals but I had not expected to experience Notre-Dame’s size, the peering gargoyles, the art and statuary and the rose windows.

Prior to the fire, whenever my wife Suzie and I were in Paris, we would visit Notre-Dame to pray. We’ve come to appreciate its intricacy, breathtaking beauty and natural presence that has developed over centuries. Notre-Dame is a place to know and feel God’s presence and to be heard and seen by Him. 

Q: What inspired you to get involved with Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris?

In the several years, Suzie and I have become more acquainted with the history of Notre-Dame and have developed a keen interest in the rebuilding and renovation. We also became members of Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris and joined the 1163 Society at the Quasimodo Circle level. We hope that throughout their lives our grandchildren will come to know Notre-Dame and, perhaps, appreciate that it is truly a treasure for the world.

Q: What will drive you as a board member?

I am honored to have been invited to join the Board of Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris and look forward to working with the other Board members to among other things help in raising money for the Foundation. Over the years, I have served as a Board member of both for profit and charitable organizations. As I learn more about the reconstruction and restoration, I will try to support the various teams without hindering their progress and I will spread the word and promote the efforts of the Friends Of Notre-Dame de Paris.
