What a surprise!I'm glad to hear from you and to know that you are well.Congratulations on being retired.I haven't made that transition yet.
Florence and I live in Rock Hill, South Carolina, which is essentially a suburb of Charlotte, NORTH Carolina, just across the state line (where the taxes are lower). We shall celebrate our 37th anniversary on June 27.
We raised 4 sons, Mike, Matt, Jeremy and Josh (nice biblical names).Regretably,Mike, our eldest passed away in 1999, but the others are doing well.
Jeremy is a graphic designer and Creative Art Director for a major international advertising agency headquartered in Chicago.Josh lives in Lombard, IL, about a 45 minutes west of Jeremy, who lives is downtown Chicago and loves the city life.
Matt lives in San Francisco, one of our favorite cities to visit.Our true favorite is Paris.We had the opportunity to spend a week there and to visit Jeremy while he was on assignment creating a new web presence for the automobile manufacturer Renault.
Our youngest, Josh (27) had marriage problems and while he has recovered and remarried, Florence and I are raising his two daughters,Taylor (age 8) and Elizabeth (age 5).
I am sorry to hear of the loss of your parents.My dad passed away in 1993, but my mother is well and living in New Port Richey, as is my sister and her husband.I haven't seen them for a few years, but we have telephone and written contact.I do speak with my niece Michalann periodically.
