family members across the country. I am truly
looking forward to your arrival in Phoenix
for the wonderful event Ellen is orchestrating.
As many of you already know I am living happily
ever after in Scottsdale with my wife Audrey
(Auddiee) and my youngest son Adam,
now 13. I have been blessed with a wonderful
life and I have never enjoyed it more than
I am at this very time. I have three fantastic
sons, Jeff, Brad,
and Adam and three
precocious, beautiful, and energetic grandchildren,
and Meagan. I look
forward to you getting to learn a little about
them from the wonderful web site Ellie is
putting together. My otherwise wonderful life
is enhanced even more when I have the opportunity
to spend time with the kids and grandkids.
I am so proud of all of them and delight in
My favorite past times are reading, working
out, golf, traveling with Aud and spending
time with our mutual friends. Adam is involved
in a number of sports so, great times for
me include being a very enthusiastic spectator.
Sometimes maybe too enthusiastic. Golf is
a real passion for me and I get an extra kick
out of it when Brad, who only lives 5 minutes
away, and I get a chance to play together.
I haven't been able to get Adam interested
yet but who knows what the future may hold.
Sister Patty has really gotten into the game
so I am looking forward to some quality time
with her on the links.
I wish Jeff, Seanne, Brooke and Meagan lived
closer but I know how much they love Portland
and they have made a wonderful life there.
This summer Aud and I will be doing a little
traveling and it will certainly include visiting
Jeff and family either in Portland or meeting
them somewhere for a vacation.
