Please note I have added a links page - sparse at the moment.
BUT after you all send me your favorite links it will be a great 
resource area.  Please E-Mail me YOUR personal web pages and
favorite sites to add to this page!

I was going to begin with both reunion slide shows (before and "at")
and the McGiverin/Cieslewicz Wedding slide show - HOWEVER 
these files are to large to download, so for a mere $5.00 I'll send 
all 3 on a CD. These are files any up to date computer with a CD
should be able to play (regular executable files)

Order page available soon on the links page for the slide shows 
and the Genealogy Book also !
Also Note: I am unemployed at the moment - any web site 
building jobs or other leads on employment - appreciated!

Mary (laughlin) Hobert Writes: 
Dear Family....
It would have been so easy to ask everyone their t-shirt sizes 
on the reunion form you all sent back, but I don't always like to 
take the easy way out. So, now I have to ask you to return this 
email ASAP with all your familys' sizes because
we have to get the info to Meg Casey Benben (who has designed 
some great shirts), by next week.
So, if you're getting this email, list the family members who are 
coming to the reunion and their sizes and just shoot them 
back to me. 

That's about it!  The next thing you'll hear will be an email or 
letter from me giving you all the last minute details.  Pray that 
I don't forget anything! 
There is SSOOOOO much to remember!  The committee 
(Rodney and Mary Casey, Kevin and Vicki McGiverin, and 
Tag and me) is really working to make this unbelievable turnout
(130 adult reservations so far! 
If you know of anyone who hasn't let us know they're coming yet, 
encourage them to connect with me!)
a fabulous, heartwarming, inspirational, fun weekend.
We have 3 wks to go before you all arrive!  Make sure you have 
all your plans made!  Love to you all...........Mary 

I have change the website and added a Navagation Bar at the top 
now please let me know how this is working out - you need I/E 
5.5 or better or latest mozilla or netscape (6.? or preview 7) 
seems to allow easier movement around the site.

WoW,  good news from Bob casey ! 
Howdy all-

Let me add my thanks to Quinn's for all the prayers & good wishes 
during what was a pretty harrowing time in the hospital. 
As Quinn said, it was a nasty attack of the Ecoli infection, 
initially affecting my blood and urinary systems, but quickly 
generating side effects in my nervous system--specifically spasms 
of pain (level 7-8 on 1-10 scale) on the right side of  my head above 
my right ear. Recoiling from those spasms was literally bouncing me off the bed. 
After a host of tests to make sure they had it figured out 
(IVP, CAT-scan, EEG, MRI, if you're into abbreviations), they attacked it with 
intravenous CIPRP antibiotic and got it under control. 
Suffice to say, if it was a type of near-death experience, I don't recommend it!! 

The experience does generate some lessons learned that are worth passing on, 
I think:
(1)  If you ever experience uncontrollable shudders or tremors, get to a hospital, 
IMMEDIATELY!  All the doctors reiterated that such an effect is a clear indication
that some kind of infection has gotten hold of your body.
(2)  For the guys over 50--get annual physicals and pay attention to the blood 
results that show elevated PSA readings.  That's a possible indicator of Prostate 
cancer but can be caused by a couple of other things (in my case the biopsy to 
check for cancer was negative)  Even so, it's nothing to toy with.
(3) If you do get a biopsy, recognize that it is an invasive procedure. 
It may not necessarily lead to an infection, but the super-sharp Infectious
Disease Specialist doctor on my case is convinced it's one of the preconditions 
that can lead to infection.  (Just to drop the other foot, she & others never 
isolated the source of my Ecoli infection.  But she concluded that the biopsy & 
traces of blood in urine on annual physical in Jun were preconditions that 
combined with something I ate or drank to give me the Ecoli, even though others 
tea and drank the same things I did and did not get it.)

Anyway, thanks again for your prayers and support.  Now that's enought serious
stuff and we can get on to the lots more fun stuffy of a great 
. . . exactly a monty away from now.  Hope you can all make it--it'll be a super 
celebration of our faith, family and fun!!

Love to all from all here / Bobby & Mary Frank

One bit of family news.  Two cousins 
Meegan (Catherine Casey Owens) Kriley 
and Quinn (Bill Casey) Casey competed 
in and completed the San Diego Rock-n-Roll Marathon 
on 2 June.  Quinn finished just under 4 hrs and Meegan 
a bit later, but both  reported a great time in a really neat city. 
Hopefully Meegan  &/or Quinn will send you pictures / add 
details for the family website.

WOW - I just found out there was an update to my family tree 
program "Brothers Keeper" That makes web pages for me 
automatically from that data base!  so - big changes in the 
genealogy page !   This means I only have to update the 
family tree program and press a button and 
BAM ! web page made!
so I don't have to constatnly update both, and maually 
make those family pages - and whats better - it's easy 
to do each time I get even the simples updates 
OH HAPPY DAY !   :-) 
If any one wants to get the program do so - I can keep the 
updated files available on this site and all you have to do 
is copy data files over and view them yourself.
