This is Sven, our Swiss exchange student. I think we were putting him on the plane to go home after living with us from ‘93-‘94. He sadly died in ‘96, but we all did fly over a couple of times to visit with him and his family in the intervening years, and have been back to see his dad.
We still miss our Sven-ie.
But life goes on, complete with ever so many changes since 1996. My heart will always hold my sweet, Swiss son in a special place. He loved, loved Mayberry. And us.
Share some hugs and smiles today with those you love.
