It was true bittersweet leaving some precious friends that were close as family, but were returning to our native state and peeps.
Retirement is a huge adjustment but we're Texan to the core, of more generations than we can document and it's food for the soul, being home.

We miss some dear folks there that we spent Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Easter with for a lot of years, but we keep in touch.
Our daughters met and married son-in-laws that we love very much, so yes the islands were very good to and for us.
