I also work part time for J.E. Sawyer and Company of Glens Falls. We are a plumbing and heating industrial supplier.

We have two grandchildren (Andrew and Katherine) who reside with their parents Joe and Kris Fusco in Rutland, Vermont. We are expecting a third grandchild in February who will reside in Chino Hills, CA with his/her?? parents Nancy and Hugh Miles." December 10, 1997
