  1. Glad you’re having a great trip and folks are interested in knowing more about America. It’s truly the greatest place on earth and we all should realize how lucky we are to have been born here. Gmom and I are currently down in Florida, getting out of the the winter weather and enjoying the sunshine. We are working on trying to sell our condo and if we do, we will rent John’s condo for next year. Maybe if you schedule permits, you could come to Richmond to visit this summer. Miss and love you and hope to see you soon….Gdad and Gmom…
