"Life is a series of choices. Try to make the best
choice with the information you have, understanding that not every choice will be the right one. What
is important is that you learn from your mistakes,
and the next time you are faced with a similar
choice, you make the right decision." - Greg Julian
"Don't just follow what others are doing or saying -
determine what you need to reach your goals.
Basically, trust your instincts. You can certainly learn
from others - take knowledge from them, build your
library so to speak - but follow your own voice and
find your own path to take." - Grant Julian

"Several years ago, we had the opportunity to play golf at Pebble Beach with a colleague of ours. We had asked Grant to join
us on similar trips and on previous occasions he had to back
out at the last minute because of work, illness or family commitments. Our father (Gary) indicated that under no circumstances
can we back out of this trip. In fact, he said, 'Unless you are
dead, you better be at the airport Thursday morning.' I was
waiting in the line at the airport security when I received a
call from my father asking me to help Grant up to the security
line. Apparently, he woke up in the morning with a fever and
bad headache. We proceeded to get him through security and
onto the plane, where he slept the entire six-hour flight.
"Once we landed we had to drive from San Francisco to Pebble Beach, California. On the way we decided to play a round
of golf at Pasatiempo Golf Club in Santa Cruz. Grant said he
could not play, so we told him to wait in the car, and we would
check on him at the turn. Well, at the turn we were having
such a great time that we went all the way to the 10th tee box
before we realized we forgot to check on Grant.
"We went to the car, but Grant was missing. We found him
in the clubhouse laying on the couch with a high fever and a
half a dozen Gatorade bottles around him. We thought we
should take him to the hospital, but we were having such
a great time we finished our round first and took him to an
emergency clinic after. The emergency clinic diagnosed Grant
with viral meningitis and gave him steroids and antibiotics.
"The next day Grant woke up and, to our surprise, was ready
to play golf! He thought he might've had a tooth problem
because the right side of his face felt swollen. We played the
round at Pebble Beach, the next day at Spanish Bay and flew

"I have found that in life these things are very
important: (1) You treat others as you would want
them to treat you; (2) Try to be as honest as you can
in every endeavor. These two adages will shape
your life and how you live it." - Gary Julian
home on the red eye Saturday night. Grant immediately went
to his local hospital, where he was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy,
which he had for over three months before finally regaining
feeling in his face. We are now more lenient on the necessity of
our trips and never question Grant on his availability." - Greg
"Our parents grew up in a small coal mining town in Pennsylvania. They had one goal: move to the South and get away
from the dreary weather. Upon graduating, Pops (Gary) got a
job in Pittsburgh. We moved three times during our childhood.
The first move was to South Jersey. Next, we moved back to
Pittsburgh, a mile from our first house. Then we moved back
to South Jersey, about five miles from our first house. We spent
most of our life in South Jersey, but during the eight years we
spent in Pittsburgh, the Steelers won four Super Bowls. So, we
will always be Pittsburgh sports fans." - Grant
"While traveling cross-country in 1983, Pops made plans to
stop along the way to see his Uncle Dan in Oklahoma. Pops
hadn't seen Uncle Dan in a very long time and got lost in
Uncle Dan's neighborhood. Pops asked for directions from a
neighbor on a riding lawn mower. Being the guy he is, Pops'
conversation lasted 20 minutes. Toward the end of the friendly
talk, Pops blurted out 'Are you my Uncle Dan?' The neighbor
looked at him like he was nuts. We must have laughed for 20
minutes. From time to time, Greg and I will just look at each
other and say, 'Are you my Uncle Dan?'"
