"For 40+ years, the Phaneuf family has held a very special place in my heart and my life. When Ryan was 4 years old, Bob and I took him to his first airshow at the Manchester, NH Airport. He absolutely loved it. Ryan pointed to one of the planes and told us 'Someday I am going to fly that jet plane.' And, he certainly achieved and lived that dream. I am honored to be part of this organization in memory of my godson, Captain Ryan Phaneuf."
