When you get married you immediately become part of something larger than yourself.
You are part of a picture that includes extended family, history, and aspirations.
So when I took my bride down the aisle over 30 years ago, I became part of a large, boisterous Needham family known for their good looks and good grades.* (source: my wife..)
Growing up in Wellesley as the son of two parents who were both only children, and having only one sibling myself, I knew that I’d hit the jackpot with my fun-loving new family members.
But I also gained something else.
I gained someone important to all families…an insurance agent!
That’s right; following the example of my father-in-law, I also became a member of the Barry & Farrell Insurance Agency Family when I signed on as a client.
And now, three decades later, I am still a part of Barry & Farrell.
So when I perused the Swellesley Report this morning, I was enjoying a blog about Wellesley’s Boston Bruin, Ed Barry when I found out that the former Boston Bruin was the elder statesman of the insurance family who’d welcomed me some 30 years ago!
A “parental figure” with a “life” before kids????
Just another nugget from the Swellesley Report.
