My Family

My lovely wife Irlanda. We met on Yahoo chat wile she was still in Colombia and I was working in South Carolina. At first my intent was just to make some new pen pals and friends but it very quickly moved past that point to full fledged, head over heals being in love.

I spent most of my paycheck sending flowers, paying for a mariachi band to show up at her house and serenade her, sending her an endless supply of Vermont Teddy Bears. I can vividly remember spending hours of holding in my stomach so I could send her a photo of myself that I wasn't embarrassed about!

She is loving, caring, passionate and, luckily for me, organized! I would be lost without her in more ways than one.

There's no doubt who the lucky one is in this photo. She moved to the US several years ago, where we initially lived in Underhill Vermont, but later moved to Maine. We used to have dear and bear in our front yard which we have apparently traded for red tailed foxes and bald eagles overhead! I think the pond of noisy frogs just followed us here.

All I can say guys is that if you ever have the opportunity to visit Colombia - Go!

This is my son Gregory who is a physics major at University of Southern Maine. We have some great conversations and debates on a variety of topics, as long as I can keep him off of the computer and video games...ah well, I guess it's time to forget about curbing that vice!

Greg is a great son, he is intelligent, supportive, compassionate and responsible. He has never given me cause to worry or fret. I love him dearly and am incredibly proud of him.

My daughter Caitlin, or should I say Cici! Either way she is and always will be my princess. She has the most beautiful soul, she can write the most beautiful of poetry, songs and take the most amazing photos.

Caitlin is passionate to the extreme and it has taken her on many journeys, some beautiful and exotic while others have been dark and lonely.

For someone so young, she has done much more than most people do in their entire lives, very much like her dad. I love you very much.
