A QSO may last only a few moments.. But a QSL is prized FOREVER.................. Other interests are genealogy and stamp collecting. My wife and I have 4 biological children and an adopted multi handicapped daughter that is 22 now. Her name is Joy. She is perfectly named. she cant talk or walk but is a total character and joy. We also have 10 grandkids. So plenty to keep us busy. See you in the pileups.

It is with a sad and aching heart that I must report that our youngest daughter Joy Elizabeth Franklin passed over to be with the heavenly father on 23/March/2014.  My wife and I were up at 3 am giving her a breathing treatment. She was acting like her old self laughing , smiling,  mocking noises that my wife made. We put her to bed about 3:30. When I went to check on her at 6am she was gone. It is alway difficult to lose a child. We really miss her as she went everywhere we went. If she wasn't going we didnt go either..
