Sorry to have missed the reunion. Dixie and I planned to attend until we had a major fire in our house in July. It is just now being repaired. We celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary last year and are currently living in a retirement home in Irvington, VA, although we still have the house on the water at Drum Point, VA about 10 miles away. Photo is of our 55th wedding anniversary.
