Farewell Party July 13th

Carolyn, Rahman, Muska, Gopal

Rahman brought his daughters to the party. Najiba was tending to company at their house so couldn't come with them. We sure missed seeing her before we left, but we were thrilled to see and hug the girls. Gopal was partcularly happy to see Muska.

Hema, Laxmi, Carolyn, Jasoda

Ishwar, Shyam

All of our Nepali friends came all through the day. Since we couldn't meet them all individually, we were really happy they all came. We are so grateful to Shyam and Dinesh for arranging this event. This was the biggest party we ever had at our house. After the party, we had one last bhajan at our house. We feel very blessed.

Dexter at the party

Suzie and Dexter came for the day. Ramon had to attend a funeral in L.A. We missed him very much.
Katie, Zoey, Joan, Luke
Joan and Scott brought Katie and Zoey. Luke and Dianna came and spent the day. We will miss their wedding in August and will be waiting for pictures. Todd and Sharon came and shared our day with us. We said goodbye to them at the party.
Mike Huhman and Nelson came. Mike took wonderful pictures at the party that we're going to post separately when we get our DSL connection at home (in a few days). Mike came the day we left, and helped us get the house cleaned up by taking loads to recycling centers and one to the dump. Thank you so much, Mike. What would we have done without you? We not only appreciate your hard work, but having you there was important to us.

We want to give a special thank you to Genny who stayed until we left for the airport. Her quiet presence helped soften those frantic moments. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
