Today my wife Sandy would have been 66 years old, had breast cancer not taken her life nearly 15 years ago.

Sandy was a loving wife and mother, especially the latter — you did not want to cross her regarding any of our children!

She was also an excellent teacher after returning to school at Dominican College and obtaining both her bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate while battling cancer.  I discussed details of this extraordinary five-year struggle with cancer here:

Today, though, I would prefer to remember the good times, so here are more photos of Sandy over the years.

Happy Birthday ……………….. Sean … Risa … & Matt


Okay, I am really bad.  Because I was in the middle of my trial when my son Sean & daughter Risa had their birthdays, I just didn’t have time to do their birthday power points.  When the trial ended, I was already way late, so decided to wait until son Matt’s birthday to do all three at once!  So, here they are.

Sean & Risa … happy belated birthdays!  Matt … happy birthday today!

The links are to animated power point versions of the birthday greetings.  Be sure to play them if you can.
