Emily and Dave live in Reading, MA with Dave’s two fantastic teenagers, Nora and Joe, whom we are very much enjoying as members of the family.

Celia, 40, continues to teach art at Gates Elementary School in Acton. She and Jason Shelkowitz, who teaches music at Sargent Elementary School, have two delightful daughters. Shelly, 6.5 years, is engaging and inquisitive. Olive, almost 4 years, is charming and growing up too fast.

Ann, 67, loves retirement, reads continually, and manages our family activities. She kept our contractor on track in the recent remodeling job.

Fred, 68, works part-time at Lincoln Lab after his retirement in April 2017. He is still enjoying swimming and hiking. Ann and I love being near our family.

All our best to you in 2019.
