This is my wife, Honor. 
We met in 1978 at 
Santa Monica College where we both graduated from.
She is the salt, air and water of my life. For allmost 
30 years now,
we live, love, and laugh, every... single... day...

Honor, as the Beatles wrote: there are people and places I remember all my life. Some have changed, some forever, some not for better. Most have gone, some remain. 
All have their places and moments.  Lovers and friends I still can recall and In my life I've loved them all. But of all these friends and lovers there is no one who compares with you and these memories fade and  I think of love as something new with you. Though I know i'll never lose affection for people and things that went before and I know I'll often stop and think about them, but Honor, in my life I love you more. 
I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart.  Wherever I go,
 
you go with me...

These are my children,  Jonathan DeSimone and Melissa DeSimone.  For the past 15+ years, through the will and grace of God, they have been the focus of my life. This picture was taken in Alaska in the summer 2003. They have traveled to  about 20 countries all over the world and a bunch of states here in the USA. Since the day they were born, I pray for them the blessings of Abraham.
