25 Nov 2015: A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since the last contribution... But so be it - we might add a brief retroactive report later! But here is something worth posting: Following John (Clark)'s recent bad health and passing a few days ago, Philip wrote a brief story of his life - we added some pictures together, and here you can see the result (10 MB pdf file).
31 Dec 2014: We had a lot of fun at the two parties (12/27 in Chicago and the 12/28 in South Bend)- Mary and I thank all our friends and relatives for bringing or sending lots of items such as poems, pictures, memories etc. We read or performed many of them at the parties - including the play "The wizard of ID" performed by all our grandhldren (except Hoshi who was having a well-deserved nap) and our senior son GEB. A lot of photos of from the two parties have been already posted on varous participant's websites, including my own and Mary's, and I will try to post many of the contributions and photos here early next year.
I have to include a short note of triumph: we almost gave Mary a heart attack on the 26th when through the door came Hoshi, carried on the shoulders of her father and mother - Daniel and Anita - all the way from Japan to join in the celebrations. I must thank all who made it possible to keep the surprise - the picture of joy/amazement in Mary's face as they arrived was a never-to-be-forgotten moment!!
Here it is, click to enlarge: .
