A note from Jamie Rawles

September 22, 2013

Have practiced GI medicine in Virginia Beach for almost 27 years. I spend most of my spare time managing several family farms, hunting, smoking hams and bacon, raising a garden, restoring old buildings, and exploring the bottomlands of the Meherrin River. My wife, Robin, and I have raised 4 boys and are now ’empty nesters’ since the youngest went off to college last fall. Fortunately he returns to be my fishing guide and hunting partner from time to time! The oldest 2 are married and both physicians in surgical residency training. My third son is a recent graduate of Virginia Tech and works for the city of Richmond. Last October we were blest with a granddaughter through my oldest and his wife. We were in Wilmington, NC in July and had dinner with Bill Morine and his wife, Pam, in their beautiful home overlooking the salt marshes and waterways of the outer banks of ,NC.. Had a great time catching up. Also read Dave Morine’s book (a gift from Bill!) about his month long canoe trip down the Connecticut River from Canada to Long Island Sound. Its a thoroughly entertaining read for any Deerfield outdoorsmen! Looking forward to seeing all of you at the reunion this June!
