Ginger,

I didn't realize this was for professional employment in the VI.

Please accept my reservation as a passenger on your maiden voyage!

Hey Steve and Ginger!

CONGRATULATIONS Steve! Have a great time on your trip. Hopefully we will see you next go-round or after your retirement. My rad and chemo treatments are complete, and I'm having surgery on 23 Oct, so we may get back home in Dec or Jan.

Hasta pronto!

MAX AND IRENE
