Family Christmas

Our two sons and their families came out from New York City, and we had a great day together – abundance of food, gifts and love. Even the doggies got gifts..! Marian and I slipped out for one Christmas Eve service.┬áThankful for families at Christmas!





Merry Christmas!

Welcome Christmas! – especially as you bring 55deg F and rain to Long Island! Our small home will be filled when our sons and their wives/partners arrive on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Marian and I are are thankful for our 9 months here since leaving New Hampshire – tho’ we miss our friends there – and the joy of again being close to family and so many old friends. May your “Holy-Days” be filled with warmth, gratitude and love as we celebrate “God’s indescribable gift” to us.

Two Weddings

I retired years ago from full-time pastoring, but this fall kept me busy with weddings! On successive weekends, our son was the groom in an intimate garden wedding, and the daughter of good friends the bride in a big “Long Island style” wedding. Having known them both since childhood, it was a delight and a privilege to be part of launching them into married life. Marian smiled as she watched “the young couples” celebrate, and danced in her wheelchair..!
