I remember meeting Lin and Michael when visiting mutual friends in Arizona a few years ago. We hit it off immediately, in fact, the next time they took a trip to California , they called us and on their way back hone they stopped in Palm Springs and we were able to get together for a delightful meal and shared experiences concerning our mutual friend. These were two people that I wished lived closer....yes, we could have shared more fun times.
