Yes Milwaukee is good town. No, I do not know the Reigles (sorry if I butcher the spelling!) If I do run into them, I will tell them you said "Hi!" :) Like you, I also have a son-in-law serving vicarage in Wheaton, IL. I wish I could get my son back to church...period.
Hi Marcy, thank you for the birthday greeting! I was born and raised in Milwaukee...which I do miss. I have been here in El Paso for almost 9 years now. 4 more years and we will see where we go next.
Blessings to you!
