I just got back from visiting the old Delta gang in Seattle. While I was there Jacob and Asenath White came into town, so I got to catch up with them too. How strange it is that every time I'm in Seattle I always end up running into so many more people that I hadn't even planned on seeing. It's always so much fun to catch up with what everyone is doing. I will be coming back home to AK in Feb and hope to catch up with people while I'm in town. Just thought I would share the pictures of the group.  "Delta Gang"  Jacob and Asenath White, Shannon Bradley, Myong Gartz, and Jessica White.  Photo Courtesy Shannon Bradley

 "Delta Girls" are Jessica, Shannon, Myong, and Amber Gephart.  Hope to see everyone soon!
