Heh. You sound as if I would not know you. Doug brought you to Green Valley for one of the family gatherings a few years ago.You sure made a big impression on me and the others. Cute, funny, smart and a bundle of energy. I guess you have grown quite a bit since then. I was overseas for 7 years before that and otherwise Doug does not time his visits with mom with the others of us that live on the west coast; that is why it seems the family is so not in touch. Plus we are all so busy.
You should e-mail me so I can put you in my family contact list and stop talking on this message board. Also we need to put you in touch with my children, your 1st cousins. They would love to get to know you. They are pretty cool kids. My youngest Elizabeth is just a year or so older than you and a real character. My oldest daughter is graduating from University of the Pacific this year and you have another cousin John IV that is going to UCSD. There is also Erik, my oldest son, who is an excellent older brother so I would think would be an excellent older cousin. I have a recent photo of them together that I can e-mail you.At one of the last family gatherings my kids traded contact info with your Aunt Susan's son, Thanos, so now they are in touch. It was interesting to watch them trading e-mail addresses etc... They were all so eager to stay in contact; a really nice group of young people.
Our family tree is really interesting. Very well documented and so goes way back. (except for the Ehrhart quadrant) When I hear from you I will invite you so you can go in and see who and what..... It still needs a lot of work though and I guess that is my thing. So see you. E-mail me. firstname.lastname@example.org
