This site is dedicated, first to our families and friends who have kept our spirits up with their letters and made us feel connected, (with a special thanks to Margaret and Gerri, for support efforts above and beyond the call of duty), and second, to all the wonderful folks we have met along the way. This narrative is excerpted and somewhat edited from letters to friends and family.

Keep in touch
