I just wanted to share with you all an article about my oldest son Doug (Jones)

who recently donated one of his kidneys to a friend who needed it.

I am really looking forward to the reunion next year. Itís hard to believe

that we are all so old. I keep in touch via e-mails with Marty, Janet, Trudy

and Rosie but thatís about all. I may see Rosie once a year or so (sheís about

1 hour away) but we both work too many hours to get together much! Let

everyone know that I would be happy to answer any e-mails if anyone would like

to write.  Click here to read Doug's story
