Richard with Gerry and Jason Lane
In 2009, Richard and I had the opportunity to see friends and stay with family. New Years Eve last year, we were in the Philippines with cousin Florian’s family, then went to Puerta Galera to join Gerry, Virginia Lane and their son, Jason. In February , Richard was back to Seoul and I went to Guam and visited Mom, Sis Alita and John’s family and saw old friends, Kathy and Tim Kernaghan and my college friend, Cecile. Early Spring, Richard and I went to Tokyo, and met with Cindy, Vivian, Janice and Dennis. During the summer, I met with cousins and friends in the Philippines and also had the chance to join Fred, Eva and Andrea during their vacation in Tagaytay. While in Manila, I had a reunion with my High School classmates, Loida, Vangie, Maryann, Annette, Dory, Madonna and Teresita.
During Fall, I went to Maryland for a Family reunion and to attend Mitch & Ally’s Wedding and stayed with Fred and Eva, while Richard was with, Hess and Nancy in Lincoln. We met up in Chicago and had a chance to see, Cousin Ben and Carol, Bert and Maryann and the kids. We visited Joji, Barry and high school classmate, Gen in Henderson, Len ,Ginnie, Kep & Alyse in Las Vegas. Grace and Oliver kindly shared their home in Walnut Creek while we were in the Bay Area . While visiting Ted, Jan & Quinn in Alameda, , and dinner with Bobbee and Jim in Pleasanton. From there, Richard and I went to Portland and spent most of our time with Marc and May . It was lovely to see everyone! Thank you all for your warm hospitality. Richard and I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
For this year, I plan to travel around the first quarter to Las Vegas, then see Marco and May in Portland to help plan their Wedding. Perhaps see friends in Tokyo before coming back to Seoul. Sometime during the year, Richard and I will use his winning tickets to Hong Kong. Perhaps we can go to Vietnam from there.
For the 3rd quarter, it’s Marco and May’s wedding, and our 25th anniversary in Portland.
Soon it will be Christmas Season again, and time to make another newsletter. Time is ticking as I type this newsletter.
Richard and I wish you all a Happy 2010. May you all have another successful year, continued peace and Joy at home and at work!
College Friend, Cecile
