Hi there. We are trying the snowbird scene this winter. Last year the weather was horrible on my rheumatoid disease.  I'll try and pop in from time to time.

I currently live in Central IL, but grew up in Mt. Prospect, which is only 40 minutes away from GL. At one point, I lived in Gurnee, which is only 15 minutes away. Beach Park time I'm up, maybe we can meet for coffee!!

I live in Beach Park, Il as well. My youngest sons PIR is Sept18! I'm so excited! He seems to be doing better than usual. He was never able to hide anything in his voice... My anxiety slowly faded away by hearing from him. I was hoping to connect with other Navy moms in the area!

Welcome to the roller coaster of emotions!  I'm in southwestern part , close to ST Louis.  Pat L is up northern area.  We are here to help you when the times get tough, or you cry for no reason at all. Start writing letters now, and mail them all when you get an address.

Pat could you e-mail me more information about Thanksgiving at the Villa Park VFW. Do they need anything (food, money, etc.)? My husband and I would like to come help and are willing to donate more than just our time. e-mail: s_reilly at Hotmail dot com.  Thanks.
