Memory is Fading
Who, when and where? As answers to these
become more difficult, one might question the answers to "what"
as well. But Gail and Denvy did return to Alaska with Becky, Marc and
Tina, and Tina's parents for a short summer visit. It was a review of
their past and a step into the future. They toured Resurrection Bay out
of Seward and stayed in the hotel where they watched the first man to
walk on the moon. They stayed with friends in Trapper Creek while Tina's
parents stayed in the bed and breakfast that once was the home of Gail
and Denvy. But they don't remember what year it was!
Back in Oregon
The routine is still not routine for the
Saxowskys as they venture out into different areas of Oregon. Gail attended
training to maintain her status as instructor of instructors of CPR in
the mountains of Washington. Denvy writes his final paper for his Masters
and is offered a teaching job at Western Oregon University. He also becomes
assistant part-time campus minister for Fellowship House and quits
the lumber supply salesman job. The house continues to move toward completion
with siding and decks. The brickwork around the entry and the ceramic
kitchen floor would have to wait a little longer.
