As we close out the books on 2016 and begin a new year we wanted to express our gratitude for all the love and support we received during an emotionally challenging 2016. In June we unexpectedly and rapidly lost Jerry Schwartz; dad, best friend and co-founder of Windsor. Hal Brooks beat back lung cancer with surgery and two rounds of chemo. Lastly, in early December Jane Brooks, Hal’s wife of 60 years, succumbed to her decade-long battle with Alzheimer’s.
Family, friends and business associates provided tremendous support for us during these difficult times with messages of love and friendship as well as wonderful memories and stories that brought smiles to our faces.
I had the tremendous honor to ride shotgun next to my dad for decades and learn from a true visionary in our business. For the past 16 years I have had the privilege to lead the fantastic group of people we call Windsor and contribute to NFP, which grew from Jerry’s three-page business plan to a multi-billion dollar success story.
In 2017 Windsor begins its fifth decade of continuous operation and we are filled with excitement and energy to continue to grow and support all of you.
Thank you for entrusting us with your life insurance cases.
Thank you for allowing us to be a partner in your success.
Thank you for your friendship.
Cheers to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017!
