Kayaking in Alaska's fjords was stunningly majestic this summer with my wife, Margaret, daughter Katie (currently getting her master’s in Positive Psychology at ASU) and son Jack (currently a second-year medical student at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.). Gearing up for a celebration next year of our software company's 20th anniversary - myCM.com. (I) couldn't be prouder of all our amazing employees, many of whom have been with me since the founding of the company. Shout out to the Class of 1959 on behalf of my dad, John Banas Jr., M.D., who is currently retired and living in Monaco and Warsaw, Poland. He sends best wishes to all his classmates!”
