DID YOU MISS US?—The Altena family, minus their younger son and bringing along their older son’s friend instead, enjoyed a spring break cruise to the Bahamas. Pictured at left are Will, Bill, Beth and Richard. While on the trip they happened across the Gross family of Rockford on the same trip. The other mom was kind enough to write down everyone’s names, including their son’s friend who went along, too. Unfortunately, the notebook with the names in it doesn’t seem to have made it back.
