Forty-eight years in a nutshell: Graduation from Gilman was followed by college, medical school, and residency, during which time I met and married my wife, Linda, in a small ceremony with family and friends in Cape May, New Jersey. Two years later we moved to a 200-year-old stone farmhouse in Keymar, Maryland, on the border of Carroll and Frederick counties where I established an internal medicine practice. Over the next six years, while restoring the farmhouse and building the practice, we had our three sons. Eleven years later we traded life in the country for better schools and relocated to Cockeysville/Hunt Valley, where we continue to live. Jack, now age 34, is married to Hope and living in Washington, D.C., with our first grandchild, Brooks, born this past September. Thomas, age 32, is engaged to Katie and living in Homeland in North Baltimore. Connor, age 29, moved back east after four years in San Diego and is also living in Homeland. We are fortunate that they are close and we get to see them often, even more so since the arrival of Brooks. I’m still enjoying practicing internal medicine, although gradually slowing down to allow more time for family, golf, and spending time in Cape May, our favorite home away from home.
