Here is Ruthie, Ruth Bernadette Montanez.  We met in the summer of 1974 at Andrew Hill High School.    Married several years later in 1983.  Spent our first few years in San Jose then later moving to Ceres in the central valley of California.  After a few years of the heat we decided to head up north to Seattle.  Landing in Sammamish.  Can’t believe it it is over 20 years now.  DSCF2793

Ruth with Ann Grim then some hairy guy has got his arm around her.  We finally got a little boy in the family, Joshua.  More about him and his mom and sister Lily a bit later.

We have two wonderful daughters.  Our first is Lysondra Elysia.  She recently married Rohit Maholtra.  Currently living in San Francisco after a stint in New York.  She finish law school in Chicago at Northwest then headed off to NY.  Glad to have her back on the West Coast. 20160625_162141
