  Christmas 2003

With husband Mike and Family

Among the highlights of Mary Jo's year, she writes, were the birth of their third grandchild (Ryan Timothy Scanlon) and  the death of grandma Helen Nocero. Daughter Meg joined the Dept. of Homeland Security, Daughter Mary completed her residency program and passed her National Boards, and daughter Aimee did her first jury trial and won.  Mary Jo remains active with the Marriage and Family Life Ministry and  husband Mike will be honored by Florida Hospital for 30 years service. 

It's been fun watching Mary Jo and her family over the years.

With husband Paul at a Nuptial Mass celebrating their wedding at St. Catherine Church in Connecticut on a balmy December day when the temperature reached into the 70s.

Barbara writes that she and her husband Paul "traveled a lot this year, to Colorado, California, Florida and Prince Edward Island."

"It's wonderful being really retired," she adds!
