With the holiday season in full swing this week, it’s once again that time of year to give thanks, be merry, and reflect. Last year’s holidays looked a lot different than years past and, hopefully, we can all find some normalcy in celebrations with family and friends this year. While the challenges of these past two years still aren’t behind us, we continue to look forward because there is so much to be thankful for.
We’re thankful for the essential workers who’ve kept our community going and our world turning: the health care providers, caregivers, first responders, educators, farmers, postal workers, grocery clerks, construction workers, mechanics, restaurant and retail workers, and so many other essential workers who have given their time and risked their health.
We’re thankful for the volunteers in our community who’ve continued to provide services to those who need it most, including those who need services to address homelessness, hunger, domestic violence, mental health, discrimination, and education.
We’re thankful for the scientists and the researchers who’ve taken on the difficult task of guiding us during this pandemic, and who’ve worked tirelessly to develop life-saving vaccines.
We’re thankful for our continuing partnerships with our clients who put their trust in our firm, and we never forget it is a privilege to face challenges and to find solutions together.
We’re thankful for our families, friends, and colleagues who have been a constant source of support through these difficult times.
And finally, we’re thankful for Dennis Wydeven, one of the founding members of our firm. He briefly practiced on his own before joining his friends Neil McCarty and Irv Curry at the firm that became McCarty Law. Dennis was a model of the characteristics that we still hold up today as our standard: he put the clients’ interests first; he worked hard and showed real expertise in the areas of his focus; he was great at providing right-sized solutions that clients could afford; he was tireless in making his community a better place; he was a good teacher for the younger attorneys around him; he told good jokes and laughed with us often; he raised his voice at us almost never and only when we deserved it and then always immediately felt bad about it; he was humble and generous and a first-rate teammate. And he was always the best-dressed guy in the room. Dennis passed away on October 4, 2021, but we’re all better because he was here. We’re grateful and honored to be a part of his legacy.
From all of us at McCarty Law, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
