|We'd gotten settled into Virginia. Miimii loved her new job as a translator at
Canon. I was having my usual problems in the Air Force...I have always had
difficulties in my job, but have always managed to survive. The stress of
moving to Virginia, Miimii's new job, and buying our first house in February,
amplified everything. It took me months just to get the curtains hung. I
also had a co-worker die of Luekemia at the age of 27, same age as Miimii, and
that wore on everyone at work. Miimii and I went to sit vigil with the family
just days before the death. Lots of stress, but I rather expected things to
be tough, at least at first.

Dad and Mom had finally agreed to visit us in Virginia, after we'd begged them to visit us in Washington State for three years, but marital problems, fights and emotional fatigue between Miimii and I made it very unwise. I had to tell them no, and it was the last chance they ever had to see our house.
In 1995, Mommy and Daddy took the bottom photo for the Corpus Christi Catholic Church year-book (yes, I'm Catholic...there are bunches of us crawling around the countryside). They happened to have been married 33 years (which means they're old)...33 years and a lot of memories...here are just a few.
