  1. It all looks wonderful ~ glad to have a minute to come see you here on your new site ~ I still have to decide what to do about mine ~ :-/

  2. At first I thought that was Cerwin in the picture where it was announced that Jere and Kristen would be the new coordinators. Our youngest son, David, will be moving to Bethlehem, PA soon for the next phase of his training at Bosch. He hopes to be transferred after that to Rochester, NY. That’s where his fiancee is.
