I was fortunate that for 34 years together, Julie and I had so much in common. This included traveling together from Kauai, HI, New Zealand, British Columbia, Canada, Italy, France, Switzerland, Mexico, southwest National Parks and more, discovering new views and vistas along the way.

In 1999 she introduced me to New Zealand and her NZ Family. Two more visits only added to my appreciation for that corner of the world.

Of our many trips, a favorite was to the National Parks in Utah and Arizona. Each time we enjoyed familiarizing ourselves with the Navajo culture taking different tours and becoming more knowledgeable each time. I will and do miss those times together.
