Response from John:
It was so awesome to host my two 75 year-old birthday (March and October) guests. Who knew, they both act 55, but who is counting? A birthday gift from their incredible daughter Kristen, who along with her husband serve the needs of the world. I digress, Sharon and Bill are delightful. Full of vim and vigor. Open to a vibrant walks four blocks to lower town and back. Their wit and wisdom, travel experiences, and shear joy in celebrating themselves, their daughters, family and friends is intoxicating. We need more folks like Sharon and Bill in our lives. Lucy Hayes and I loved having them in our historic home! John
