James is Dancin'!
Go to SEE JAMES GO!
In the midst of snowdrifts, with the temperature at 2 degrees, James turned 13, and became officially a member of the adult community assuming its joyous reponsibilities, which include celebrating with great style and against all odds. Members of our wonderful family gathered on this happy occasion from as far as Canada, Arizona, Texas, and California. James, Robert, Linda and Allen, along with the two wonderful dancing grandmothers Barbara and Phyllis created an amazing celebratory atmosphere, three delicious, lavish feasts, one after the beautiful ceremony Friday, another on Saturday night, and a wonderful brunch on Sunday morning. The warmth of family love and connection melted the ice everywhere, and by Sunday afternoon the temperature in Skokie and surrounding areas had risen by 20 degrees.
