Jim, I am so sorry for the loss of your son. We are getting to age that our love ones start to leave us. For the love ones that have left me, my believe system provides me with the knowledge that I will see him in another life. If this was my son, I believe death is not the last sleep. It is an eternal awaking. Death is not the ending, it is a change marking the beginning of a more abundant life. We sometimes think of death as parting, which is true, but just think of meeting in eternity where bonds will never again be broken. Death is not going away, it is returning home. Your son will always be in your heart. When our time comes we know we will be together again forever.
Dennis, As per your instructions, I have updated my profile in grandchildren and my 70's. I added some photos such as riding elephants in Nepal and fishing on Christmas Island. It will interesting to see what other classmates of done.
Happy Birthday and many more! This year holds to be the most unusual year so it will be a birthday to remember. Stay healthy - stay safe.

Hi Jeri, thanx for the BD wishes. LInza and I are both healthy and active, but try to be careful. We just had 102 degree temperature and are fortunate to have central A/C in our home; nobody needed air conditioning in this area when we moved here in 1987. The temperatures are definitely changing. Our relatives in California are really suffering-Linza's uncle was lucky to escape the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise. The reason I mention the temperature is that I worked in Saudi Arabia and got to know many technicians and health care workers from the Philippines. I found them to be some of the most competent, hardworking, friendly and happy people I have ever encountered. Too bad, many have to work abroad.
Also, in my consulting work, I had to deal with many nurses and nurses aids from the Philippines, and found them very competent and some of the most helpful caregivers.
Keep up your good work!

Hi Brian, thanx for the Birthday wish. Linza and I are both staying healthy and busy. We are having a very nice summer with moderate temperatures. We do have central air in our house but only had it running a few days this year. We were in New Orleans in January but had to cancel a trip to one of my cousin's son's wedding in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany. We skype a lot with our relatives in Europe; unfortunately, we feel our traveling days may be done. I did get to go to a family reunion (about 300 people) in Romania with my cousins and Linza and I visited her Grandmothers house on Brick Lane in old London, so we are not complaining. Stay healthy!
