I have to take a moment to write about our oldest son, Justin. After many years of study, he successfully completed the coursework, and defense of his doctoral dissertation. Here he is - Dr. Justin Marquis, PHD (philosophy).
We were able to attend his defense. What an experience! Rick and I kept looking at each other and wondering "this is our son?!" Andrew and Eric were with us and we all celebrated by going out to eat at one of Justin's favorite restaurants in Chicago. What a wonderful day! Congratulations, Justin!
