Dave and I moved to Houston to be close to son, Tyler, his wife, Jean, and their darling two-year old daughter, Nancy. We made this big decision after Dave was diagnosed with ALS last November and realized that medical care for ALS in Salinas, CA is practically non-existent and that we needed family for this new journey we are taking. It is good in many ways to be back in Texas after so many years. I look forward to reconnecting with as many classmates as possible now that Dave's ALS has run its course. I am still not very savvy in media connections, so I apologize now for my lack of involvement thus far.

Hi Nancy. I just read your life story for the first time. You have had an amazing and successful career and life. A dad of a good friend of our son and the friend live in Tuscon, so I may be coming your way, especiallynext Septrember when the friend is getting married. Dave and i took a trip to Steamboat Springs for a high school reunion in September of 2014. It was lovely and, since it was our last trip together before his diagnosis, a special time. Thanks for your birthday greeting! The idea of being in my 503 again with financial security and grown sons sounds very appealing! Have a great year! if I can figure out how to post photos, i will do so.

Hi Ann. I was wondering if you are going to be in San Antonio on Friday, February 5th. A friend from Arizona will be in San Antonio at a work conference which ends around noon on Saturday, February 6th. I am planning on driving to San Antonio to pick her up andtogether we are going to Houston for a short visit. Her son and my son were roommates practically the entire time that were at Rice University in the Architecture Program. She is coming back to Houston with me for a few days so that she can also see son, Tyler, and his little family, especially his daughter (2 1/2 years old).

I was thinking about driving to San Antonio on Friday, February 5th if you are available to meet me for lunch somewhere or sometime on Friday so we can start to catch up after all these years.
