Introducing a New Doctor in the Family . . ..

Yes, this is a picture of Richard (my oldest younger brother) smiling for two reasons:


1. he recently married a wonderful lady and

2. he is now Dr. James Richard Willis


That is right!!! We have just received word that he successfully defended his dissertation from Auburn University in Civil Engineering (aka: Dirt, Trains, Planes and Automobiles). He will officially walk next Friday but for all purposes he is Dr. Richard Willis!!!! He has worked so hard and it has paid off - FINALLY!!!

Richard, we are proud of you and all you have done! Keep up the great work!!!
