This page is dedicated to people who have influenced our lives in a strong
and positive manner. By some measure it is a tribute, but it is by no

Twin Towers Last Dialogue
This is a poem written by an Italian, Pietro Saglimbeni, in reaction to the
events of September 11, 2001. I set it to pictures. We all owe a
debt of gratitude to the firefighters, police, and other public servants who
rushed to the aide of the victims.
The Story of Rush Spradley
Friend of my mother and World War II Veteran. A compelling story about
the durability and survivability of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. The
story of the damaged sustained by his plane is almost unbelievable if it were
not for the pictures and newspaper article account.
Donald F. Twaits
My father-in-law and Korean War Veteran who passed away before I really was
able to know him.
My father, retired Colonel in USAF, founder of Image Memory Systems, Inc. is
clearly responsible for much of the success that his offspring enjoy.
Harriet Valentine Pugnale
My mother, the woman behind my father all of these years who raised four boys,
collected numerous antiques and Coca-Cola memorabilia, and DID NOT throw out all
our baseball cards. She can always be counted on when you are in need.
John Lipscomb Johnson
This man had the foresight to document his ancestry and his life. My
genealogy information is largely based upon his work as published in
Autobiographical Notes, By John Lipscomb Johnson, Privately Published in 1958 by

My Brothers - Big and Little!
Pete Pugnale - Taught me how to keep a poker face. Great ability to sum up
a situation with just a few words. Walks softly but can carry a big
stick. Rumor around Tim's was that he has hands of stone.
Mark Pugnale - Taught me how perseverance pays off. Achieved his goal of
being an airline pilot by staying on course (a good thing for a pilot).
Rumored to offer some of the smoothest landings around.
Joe Pugnale - Taught me not to take work so seriously. He knows how
to let conflict and strife roll off him like water rolls off a duck. A
fine salesman who can talk on the phone with customers incessantly
Thom Gallie - taught me almost everything I know about software development
and document imaging. Truly one of the smartest people I know.
Barry Draskovich - My best friend. Another one of the smartest people I
