To my family in Iowa and in Spain, I hope everyone is doing well and joyous in their lives.  I have not been back to Iowa in many years, over 28.  I was back in Spain in 2011.  So much has happened in a year, and what a gap of 28 years.  Lineage on both sides of my parents families, I  want to know my family tree, I know a couple of people on my fathers side are doing it, not sure about my mothers side.   Although I am away, and awful with correspondence, letters, emails, I think about everyone.

To all the souls who have been a part of my life, you are thought of.
