Glad to hear from you so soon. Since your original posting was back in '99, I was afraid you might not be involved or available. I just visited 'ancestry.com' by chance this morning and couldn't believe there was a message about my family!
Our family moved away from Rochester in '58. I was only one year old. My dad had
bought a service station in the Traverse City
area (Michigan). I have a younger brother and
a younger sister. Unfortunately, my dad died
from a massive heart attack when he was 60.
That was in 1965, and I was only eight years old. I was lucky to have been able to spend a
lot of time with him, as his service station was next door to our house. I managed to "help" him quite a lot.
Of course, so much has happened since then, and I'm looking forward to sending you a looong e-mail. I'm 43 now, and I have a 15 year old son (Eric John), and a 13 year old
daughter (Tiffany Sue). My mother is still alive and well. She is 80 and married to a retired preacher. They live in Vestaburg, MI
(near the "middle of the mitten"). I live in
Mishawaka, IN (near South Bend).
My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
