Default Christmas Greeting from Papa to All

This year has been a good one for the Papa and Gram family. Overall the family is healthy. Papa and Gram sailed on Century in May, visited Bermuda in July and travelled to Maui and Kauai in October. Caroline played in her first competitive soccer and basketball games, Sabrina competed and won at her first karate tournaments. Philip graduated from preschool and headed off to his special all day kindergarten program. Donald learned to swim. We were blessed in June with the addition to our family of Madelyn.
On Saturday and Sunday we will have around us our girls, their families and our five grandchildren. Can it get any better than this?
May all my cruisemate friends enjoy a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah,
and may the New Year bring you peace ,health and joy.
Merry Christmas to All.
PapaBill

And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours, Papa, from the Arizona desert and the northern Arizona mountains, where we will spend Christmas with my parents at the assisted living center. We are so thankful for all that we have in our lives, bust most especially for family.

Happy Holidays to you and Gram from Tweety and 'da Coot'. I hope 2006 is equally as good to you both.

Thanks for that PapaBill, and you're right, it doesn't get any better than that! My most treasured memory of this past year was being able to cruise with both my kids on the Valor in April. I'm sure hoping we will do it agin on the Century nest New Years!


Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah from all of us in Montreal!

Happy Christmas to Papa and his family. If we have people to love and care for in our lives, then we are rich. I will be spending Christmas with many of my family. Well, about half of them. The rest will be scattered around the country. But we have all been in touch.

Enjoy your celebrations!

Merry Christmas Papa and family. I notice you are north of the city. I hope the precip coming doesn't foil plans.

Karen and family

Hi Bill:
A belated wish to you as my DW and I purchased a puppy for one of our granddaughters and I had to drive three hours to get it and another three on the return trip so I am just now looking at the boards.
As others have expressed I appreciate your love for your family and grand children. I, too, share those values above all else and hope I do as well as you and Gram do.
Best wishes for a joyous season and God Bless.

Regards,
Ben
