Happy Story

Howie and Margi grew up in the same neighborhood, both in big houses with big families, rather large nests, you might say, full of fun and simply full of life.

It was no surprise when Howie and Margi married and built their own little nest right in the same town where they grew up.

Before long, the two lovebirds decided to start a family and their nest grew and grew and grew.

Happy to be together as one big family, the children, Mary, Karen, Debbie, and Chuck were content with their lives and none were in a hurry to leave their nest.

One by one, each of the children became adults and went on with their lives and built their own kinds of nests, varied, but all with the spirit of happiness and hope.

Howie and Margi now have their own little nest with just the two of them and they are content that they built a great nest for all their family and look forward to an empty nest, once again.
