We met at a surprise birthday party for my classmate Joe. His younger sister stopped home that evening and right away we hit it off. Unfortunately Joe and I didn't then speak to each other again for a few years but are once again friends. After five years of living apart (not at Stanford as I hoped, but at Johns Hopkins to stay closer by) while Aimee went to medical school at UB, we were finally married and will be celebrating 20 years of marriage this year. We have three wonderful children and have been lucky in life.
