Celebrating Life
On December 1, 2003, I was blessed with the arrival of my son Landon Stephen. He has changed my life in so
many ways. I have a greater appreciation for the miracle of life and what it means to be a parent. Landon is
almost seven months old now, very happy and healthy.

The 2003 Class and the Association of Fellows collected
contributions for a gift and graciously hosted a baby shower for us
during the final hospitality suite this past November. I can’t thank all
of you enough for the wonderful gifts and well wishes we received.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.
