An Important Announcement!

We are pleased to announce the arrival of our 9th grandchild! Emily Claire arrived at 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, May 2nd. She weighed 9lbs 4oz. and was 20 inches long. She's awfully cute! We enjoyed visiting Stacey in the hospital. She was doing great and went home on Sunday. Here's a couple of pictures.


  1. Congratulations to Stacey and David, and to Russ and Susan. We are looking forward to seeing Emily Claire. She was a few ounces bigger than her grandpa.

  2. I cannot resist responding to the photo of a newborn baby. And this one is especially important because somewhere in the branches I get to be in the same family tree. Our love to you all.

  3. Congratulations! Love the name Emily Claire.
