Dear Friends

I've been lucky enough to do some traveling in the last few months. I've started taking one child at a time on a special vacation. Last winter I took my son Ryan (25 and single) on a mediterranean cruise which started in Venice. We thought Venice was magical.

I also just returned from a week in Seattle with my daughter Yvette (29 and married). Her husband was good enough to babysit all week so she could go. We found lots to do there and had a wonderful time. Since I have many children there are more trips planned in the future.

I had surgery in December and have recovered well and am feeling wonderful. Many of the calamities in life turn out to be blessings in disguise. Mine have.

I'm excited to get started on the next planning phase of our 45th reunion. Hope to see everyone there. We'll keep you posted on events.

Love to all
