Getting together as a family...
We have always found a way to stay in touch. We
have vacationed together, visited at holidays and met in conjunction
with my business travels around the country. I have included a sub-page
with a detailed account of my
father's experience in World War 2,
which he contributed to this site.
The first picture below is a favorite
recent picture of my parents, taken in Monet's Gardens in France.
The next two are from a "get-together" vacation in Key West, Florida
at Christmas 1999.
My parents celebrated their 50th anniversary with us
and my sister's family in New York City in the spring of 1999 (first
two pictures below). On our drive back to Pittsburgh, we stopped in
Harrisburg to meet with my uncle and his wife (third picture below),
whom I hadn't seen in 20 years.
In the summer of 1998, we had a "get-together"
vacation with my parents in Hawaii. We took the first picture below
at Kahuna Falls near Volcano National Park. The second and third
pictures below show Ben and Craig with their grandma and grandpa at
the beach in Waikoloa, our favorite spot in Hawaii.
In 1996 my cousin was married just outside of
Washington DC and the whole family converged. The first picture
below shows us in front of the Capitol and the second picture
shows Mary Lou and I dancing (rare but true - I have the picture to
prove it) at the wedding reception.
Going back a bit further, the first picture below is
from a family get together in Pittsburgh in 1992, spanning four
generations. In the second picture below, my father and I just
completed our first scuba diving lesson during a 1991 "get together"
in Hawaii to celebrate both my wedding
anniversary and Ben's 5th birthday.
Mary Lou and I were married in a small Catholic ceremony in
Kahaluu, Hawaii in 1984. We wrote our own
ticket and did it our way. What a beautiful bride.
