The Classics 4

August 29, 2021

Last installment of our trip to Michigan and northern Indiana to visit some iconic car museums. This installment starts out with some pics from our visit to the Early V-8 museum in Auburn Indiana. The first pic is of Darrell and myself in front of Terry Oberer’s donated car. The last few in this installment were taken at the Ford Garage restaurant in Dearborn Michigan.

GOAT Model A

August 22, 2021

The below Model A is owned by farmer Scott. He is not in our club but heard about our recent tour to Litchfield Illinois via Route 66 and joined in. I have been in our club for 8 years and have seen my share of “A’s” and this is possibly the best looking one I have seen during those 8 years. I dubbed it a GOAT (means Greatest of All Time for you old farts that do not stay up with the lingo of us hip younger [83] folks).

For Dylan

July 18, 2021

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for joining our Promise to build a safer world for all our children so no other parent experiences the loss of their child to gun violence.

After my precious Dylan was killed in the senseless shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, my other son Jake asked me not to say Dylan’s name aloud. The reminder of how quickly and violently his best friend had been snatched away was too painful and raw.

In the years after, I sometimes heard Jake talking to Dylan, just chatting to his brother quietly while he played. I had to stop, steel myself, allow myself to feel the anger that Jake could no longer play with his brother, and then remember that this was Jake’s way of moving forward, of keeping Dylan’s memory alive.

For me, I talk about Dylan as much as I can to help give him a legacy to give his death some form of bigger meaning through Sandy Hook Promise’s work to prevent gun violence and keep other families from having to go through what we have.

Please take a moment to watch this video I made about Dylan, and then share it with your friends and family.

By supporting and getting involved with Sandy Hook Promise, you are not only helping us honor Dylan and all the children lost to gun violence every day, but also helping protect those still with us. You’re helping Sandy Hook Promise advocate for gun safety reforms and train students and educators to recognize the warning signs of gun violence so they can prevent tragedies before they happen.

Thank you for giving us this momentum. Thank you for giving us your love. And, most of all, thank you for giving us hope.

We are making a difference – and together, we will create a safer world for all our children.

With love,

Nicole Hockley (Dylan’s mom)
