Dear 1984 Classmates:
I didn’t know my Uncle Paul (my mom’s only brother) very well because before I was born, he left the United States to teach in New Zealand. He met my Aunt Freda there and they got married. They lived in the U.S. for a few years when my three cousins were little, so I did get to know my cousins a little bit before they moved back to New Zealand. I have wanted to go visit them in New Zealand probably since I was around the age of ten. Paul and I have talked about going for many years, so this year we decided to go for our 25th wedding anniversary.
