James Slater’s Thoughts on the Importance of Family
When asked about family and their importance and influence on our lives, Jim Slater, Senior Managing Partner of Slater & Zurz LLP adds:
“I personally could not think of anyone thing to be more critical to one’s development, more influential, more rewarding, more demanding, and taken for granted by most than times spent with our families.
There are special moments we all cherish and will recall in detail forever. It might have been the kind words, the warm hug, the unique smile, or just the memory of being together.
It was during my time with my two older brothers that I continued to reminisce with them. It was the Sunday dinner my Mom prepared. It was just hanging out with my Dad. I still remember going to the Yankee games. My two brothers, Dad and I took the train to New York. I got autographs with my brothers after the game. It is still like it just happened. It is the evening meals Jan, my wife, and I shared with my daughter. I cannot remember ever missing one. It is the call to Morgen and Ella, my grandchildren, to say “Hi.” It is the Sunday dinners my daughter makes for the family. There are so many great things to remember. And all of them involve FAMILY.”
