Well, kid, we all came a long way in our lives since leaving SW Iowa! Oh, the places we have gone and the things we have done. Yes, Dr. Seuss said it all. You had such a great advantage of going to the navy and meeting Laura and this gave you a fantastic life. You did come back to the University of Minnesota to get your education and spend more time with Aunt Helen, your mother. The East coast really became your home. I know you tried St. Louis for awhile but the OCEAN really held your Attention, so back you went! Yes, you were blessed with a son and Laura’s family embraced you. A job well done.
