A big surprise!
Today I got an email from a childhood friend of my son, Chris!
John and Chris were best friends from about age 11- on through high school- and beyond.
With the passing years they had lost touch...I, personally, had not seen John in almost 20 years. (although my husband saw him
after Hurricane Andrew in 1992...we still had a house in Miami that our daughter was in and Charles had to go down to take care of some business)
It so happened I had asked Chris about this old friend just recently, and he said he didn't know what ever happened to him!
Apparently John had been thinking of our family too, and , thanks to this blog, he found us...found my email address from my blog.
I can't wait to give Chris this news and I'm sure they will want to be in touch.
John's life has taken him to Louisiana ...while Chris is here in Ocala!
Both far removed from that life they knew in SO.Dade-Cutler Ridge Fl- as kids and into young adulthood!

This is a few years later on Christmas Eve at our house-1979
Thanks for remembering us, John. Hope you find these pics fun to see again! :)
