To my friends and family,

First of all, thank you so much for your support during the last year and a half as we all faced challenges staying in touch and remaining healthy combating COVID. My heart goes out to everyone who lost a close one or struggled fighting the virus themselves.

Many of you have asked about my health considering my at risk status as someone with a compromised respiratory system. Fortunately, I am able to say that I remain healthy. I thank my caregivers for masking procedures and social distancing when necessary for helping reduce my risk of infection. I have also received the vaccine without experiencing any complications or side effects. As with any of you, I was forced to curtail many of the activities that I had become accustomed to doing. However, now that things have started to open up, and more opportunities present themselves to do more activities, I realize that we are not completely out of the woods from fighting the pandemic.

Although it has been a challenging year, it has also been eventful. My brother Chris and his wife Lindsey welcomed my nephew, Logan, into the world in January. I have been able to meet him and see my nephews Joseph and William, as well as my brother JP and my sister-in-law Olivia. It has been a pleasure to see these three Neary boys grow. We have been able to stay in touch thanks to video chat.

So far this summer, I have had the opportunity to attend some Phillies games and enjoy dining at local restaurants. I welcome the chance to do more of these and other outings while the warm weather is here. Whether it be a local park or the deck at my house, maybe we can grab a sandwich and meet outdoors or utilize the grill here at the house.

I am hoping to see as many of you as I can over these coming months. Feel free to give me a call or shoot me a text message to set up a time to hang out.
