I’m glad Deerfield was able to find my new address–I had planned to send it to the alumni office, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Dora and I both retired on August 1 and moved to Ponte Vedra, Florida. Although I was signed up for our 45th reunion and planned to attend, I was prevented by the death of our granddaughter, Isla Jean Johnson in June. Isla was born in January with a genetic defect called hypoplastic left-heart syndrome, which essentially meant she had a two-chamber heart. She died just short of her fifth month, but not before both families had fallen in love with her, so it was a painful loss. Both Dora and I hope to make the 50th. “Insha’Allah,” as the Muslims say.
