All in all 'Life is good'.

Allen and I married 47 years ago-spent 3 years with him in the Navy, he as a pilot and me 'a stay at home Mom of 2 (at the time).

Jennifer is now married with 3 children and Brady married with 2. Meghan was born when we moved back home and settled in Thousand OaksS. She is now married with 2 boys of her own. So if you are keeping score 47 years married, 3 children (2 girls,1 boy) and seven grandchildren (5 boys and 2 girls).

We have since relocated (15 years ago) to the San Diego area of Leucadia. We enjoy a very casual lifestyle at the beach - spending time traveling, enjoying our grandkids, children and friends that we have met over the years.

I am an avid tennis player, gardener and together Allen and I have enjoyed designing and building 2 of our homes and are in the process of our third.

My St. Mo's roots have survived over the past 50 years. My three sisters have all married St. Mo's graduates and my best buddies from high school Debbie Sullivan Levin, Janet Lennon Bahler, Clare Stang Walsh, Joni Esser Gregg, Mary Ellen Kenny Baker and I continue to share our lives on a regular basis; lunches, 'girlfriend' get-a-ways; Chicago, New York, San Francisco to just name a few.

Looking forward to catching up with all of you in September.
