Welcome to Charing Cross Cottage 
and a little glimpse of some of our 
dear friends and family

Nicholas and myself








Tell me what company thou keepest, 
and I'll tell thee what thou art."
        - Miguel de Cervantes 
                (1547 - 1616)







This is a favorite photo of my Father and I. 
I absolutely adore the snow and so did he. 
He always called me Pal and I thank God
every day I had a father like this man. 
I was truly blessed !

"But friendship is precious, not only in the shade,
         but in the sunshine of life, and thanks
         to a benevolent arrangement of things,
                the greater part of life is sunshine."
                         - Thomas Jefferson












This is my closest friend.....Linda.
She is my Hero and one of those
people that a person is touched by
an angel just to be able to know her.











Linda came to visit us and this is a picture of her
with Nick. It was a wonderful weekend to get to

see her again.















A true friendship that lasts 
throughout the years is rare 
indeed, and to be treasured 
as a priceless gift.









This is a wonderful friend of mine. Her name is Beth and she
is with her beautiful daughter. Beth served in the USAF
from 1985 to 1996. I am so proud of her and
honored to  know her and call her friend.













This is Gary and Beth and their wonderful children. 












Nick and Jimmy 

(Jimmy is one of our nephew's and a great person)











This is Betty and Tommy. Tommy is our cousin and he and Betty
are soooo much fun to be with. They are very dear to us !












George and Rosie and their family. 
George and Rosie our are cousins and their children are wonderful ! 






A night of celebrating the graduation of Viktor and Kathy's daughter.
A chocolate fountain, all the chocolate you can eat. What fun we had.









This is Nick and I at Rockaway Beach, N.Y. We had a lot of fun visiting my
husbands family there and this was one of the days we went to the beach.












This is our Yaya, she and I were very close and I loved her 
dearly. She accepted me into the family right away and 
treated me as a daughter even while I was still dating her 
son. I miss her very much but I can feel her with me even 
though she has passed away. 












We were able to travel all through Europe together to so many of the beautiful countries there. 











We danced in every country that we went to. (giggle)











Our family ( friends) will always live
close in my heart................






Our friends that have served in our awesome Military
