If I have ever wondered why I think about my earlier years when I spent
six weeks in England while I was in the Air Force, this family confirmed
why I still remember those days and an old girlfriend with such affection.
Brian, Joan, Angela, Trevor, Jane, Ben and Sarah Williams came the day before Hurricane Charley rampaged through Orlando. It left this place in a mess but we had the Williams to brighten our week after that. They were so much fun to be with and take to the different resorts that it made the fortnight fly by to fast. I couldn't believe it when, on the last day, I was headed to Kissimmee to take them back to the airport and home.
When I got to Bernie's Villa I could tell it was going to be a sad farewell. It was and I have already missed seeing them in the mornings.
I can't tell just what this family meant to me. They really suffered through some pretty tough times, with no electricity for almost 8 days, and destruction everywhere we went. Like Brian said, "we are survivors." They were survivors and I will surely think of them each day as I meet new friends.
Thank you for everything Brian, Joan, Trevor, Angela, Jane, Ben and Sarah. You guys were great.

with their daughter Rosemary and friend Anika Drage visited the U.S. and
Disney in August. We met in Sanford and hit it off right than. It was an
honor to be able to help them in their transportation needs to and from
the Sanford airport.
I am looking forward to doing the same for them if they ever get a chance to come back to Florida.
And Thanks again
I have the Josh Family: Keith, Daryl, Emily and Aimee on my Friends for
Life list. It was almost like I sent my own family back to England and
won't get to see them again for a while.
