Photo taken on cruise around Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.

Elaine enjoyed a week in Australian Outback on this voyage in addition to diving on the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia. She visited a sheep farm on Tasmania and watched a sheep being sheared. I believe she really enjoyed the visit with the Maori people on New Zealand, especially the formal greeting of the Maori, a touching of the noses. She thought that was really odd way to greet someone.

This photo was taken just prior to the dementia taking its terrible toll.

My beloved Elaine went to meet her father, mother and brother on 4 April 2020. She fought a 6 year battle with FTD dementia. The love of my life will always be carried in my heart, the rest of my days.

Worked with Don and Elaine at Motorola. Enjoyed meeting them at restaurants for dinner now and again. Meet with Don at several Motorola luncheons.
