Seemingly destined to accompany Hurricane Sandy this past week from Cuba to Ft. Lauderdale and up the coast to New England, witnessing destruction and despair along the way, heartfelt sympathy goes out to all those affected by the storm. Now is the time for us to roll up our sleeves, assist our neighbors, and come together as a united front to repair our homes and our hearts.
On a separate note, we would like to acknowledge the loss of a family member here at IN CLASSIC STYLE. Justin Bogdanovitch, our own editor, lost his father this past week to a lingering illness. George Bogdanovitch played a significant role in shaping Justin’s fondness for art, music, and the world of literature. Similar to his father’s passion for art, Justin’s passion for writing shines brightly for all of us to enjoy. The bonding of father and son is obvious on the book cover of Justin’s first published collection of short stories. We all love you Justin.
