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.

Have a very Happy Birthday today. I hope you can do something special with family and friends. Lets try to get together in September for another luncheon of the gang. Hope to see you soon.

Gail: Happy Birthday my friend. I may be able to stop to see you the next time I drive down. Unfortunately my husband passed away and I will be by myself or with whoever decides to ride with me. But I would like to try to stop. Suddenly you find that life is too short to let opportunities go by to see your friends when you can. And the new car helps. I know it will make it!! I'll let you know when I plan to come down.
