Residing In: Media, PA USA
Spouse/Partner: R Craig
Occupation: Retired
Children: Kenneth Craig born 1966, (deceased in 2006)
Debra Leigh born 1970
Donald Alston born 1980 More… (foster son)
Five grandchildren: Craig Michael, Born 2001, and Benjamin, born 2006.
Dawn, born in 1983, Scott, born in 1985, and John, born in 1991.
And one Foster Grandchild: Elijah, born in 2004.

We got married the same year as we graduated, and we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year along with our 50th reunion. We bought a little three bedroom, one bathroom house in High Meadow in 1966 as a starter home, and we are still here, although the house has grown as our family has expanded.
By putting on additions, we now have five bedrooms and four baths. We have a 32 year old foster son Donald with us, and my daughter, her husband and their two boys are living here. We're like a modified Brady Bunch I guess. We have been in this house for 47 years!
I never was one for change!

School Story:

I remember so well all the school sporting events, the parades, twirling batons, capes and flags. And of course, remembering Mr. Charles the band director.
I remember sitting with Ozen in the stands at a basketball game in January of 1963, talking about who I would probably end up marrying....and seeing my husband for the first time in the gym in the stands across from us.
I remember Miss Kitlaus, the young chemistry teacher whose experiments had a way of not really working.
And I remember the proms and the school trips, the Junior Variety Show, and learning to play chess with Art and Dan in my living room.
So many people hate the memories of their time in High School, but I count them as a time for learning, laughing, growing, and having a great time.

darla...wishing you a very happy birthday, and remembering the three girls who loved having their birthdays so close together when we were small. I think of those days fondly. I hope you have a wonderful birthday, and I'll be joining you in the 3/4 of a century club on Friday. Don't forget to look for the pink moon tonight...if weather permits, just for your birthday!

Happy Birthday, Kathy!!

Happy Birthday, Ozen. Our class is getting smaller and smaller, and we have lost so many vibrant and good people. Each year on your birthday we seems to have a new beginning for our world, and we pray for peace and prosperity for all people, and especially for you and your family. Your contributions have done so much for the people of your country. I wish you many more years to celebrate. Sandy

The second grade at Indian Lane School visited Media for a Class Trip this Fall. My grandson Craig is all the way on the left side of this picture.
