Hi, Hil: Have wanted to contact you for a long time. Old email address long gone. We now have a RI connection. Jason & Allyson live in East Greenwich. Jason teaches at Brown Med School, works in RI hosp. Kids go to Frenchtown School. Very nice place. Oliver's SF after school organization was so successful that the mayor took him to be the CEO of the SF housing department. Popcorn is better than every. Let us know how the family is. We can surely get together when we visit the kids.
