Karen and I were married April 7, 2006.
She was Karen Kane in high school, married to Bill Unger for 46 years, he passed away in 2003. We had not seen each
other (even briefly) in 30 years, but she is still the girl I loved in high school and I love the woman she has become.
Besides re-uniting me with my kids, (Lisa and her kids Ryan, Alyssa and Anna); (Sean and his son Caleb) and sisters(Mary
and Kathy), the union brought me an extended family of her children, grandkids and great-grandkids.
Karen's QC children Pam (Anderson), Chuck and Bill Unger have accepted me into their family...along with Angie, Mike,
Lindsay and Steven, her grand children. We have Xavier, Ashton, Brody and Kamren her GG children, who will know
only me as their GGFather. (Bill Unger died before having a chance to know them)
We bought a home in Coal Valley near my sister and near where Karen has lived for the past 46 years. We lost Mary recently,
God Speed. Kathy is now part of our lives again.
I retired from practice, last working as a physician in the Urgent Care for Genesis Health.
One never forgets their first great love. I certainly didn't.
