Retirement and new address

October 21, 2013

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.
