I have only good memories from my 2 summers spent with the Culhanes. James was delighted to welcome a french girl at home. He really took very good care of me and was very attentionate. We went to Vermont, Martha's Vineyard, we watched a tennis tournament, ate bbq in the backyard, and did so many others things.
I am sad today and my prayers are with you.
