Enjoying children and grandchildren and great-granddaughter!

School Story:

In high school I was mostly the well-behaved, sweet young, innocent thing. Later came discovery, wild and exciting adventures, hard and rewarding work in several areas, lots of travel, active lifestyle sports, family rewards, challenges, and richness that only arrives when we are at this age! I have loved every millimeter of the pathway (even the difficult, not-so-fun times). And the beat goes on .....
Looking forward toward meeting you again soon at the reunion! ??

Grandchildren?

Jack has four children (on the West Coast: OR, CA), and I have four children (on the East Coast: NJ, PA, NC). Jack died August 2017 at our home in Underwood, WA. We have ten grandchildren!

And, now remarried to Stan and living in Colorado. Stan has two children and three grandchildren- and the circle is expanding!

And, now great-granddaughter in Oregon. I can't wait for COVID-19 vaccine and ability to safely fly again!

Retirement or Retirement Plans?

I am retired (see comments above).
Stan and I were married in Breckenridge, CO, in March 2019.

Hello Maria, Today and tomorrow we are wishing we could be there for the family times together. I have known (you and) your Dad for almost seven decades, so there is very much to think about at such a time. He helped form you, so you carry those parts of him with you now. This will strengthen you and give you comfort because he was a strong and warm man. Words don't quite cover this, but that is how it feels to me. Hugs to you and your family at this time, Love, Susan

Hi, Jack (not to be said out loud at an airport!), Wishing you another happy trip around the sun! We recently came through Kittery and walked around Traip. My brother Dave and his wife Deb now live in the remodel of the family home across the street. Some things have changed (us), and some things remain almost the same (us)! Be well, be safe, be happy, Sue Collins Black
