Thanks again to Babs and Frank for this great opportunity for fellowship with these folks we have loved for over 50 years. Our paths have diverged in many ways and our families expanded to grandchildren and some great-grandchildren, but feeling of "just and intimate community" remains strong. It is amazing how quickly we reconnect and share and celebrate with each other.
