  1. Safe travels to Florida! I spent 3 months in Milwaukee on my internship on occupational therapy right after I graduated from University of Florida. I was fortunate to be there in the summer time and loved the city and travels to Door County and Chicago. I know you will miss Milwaukee and hope you have opportunities to visit again, particularly since you have family there. See you soon!

  2. Great sentiments, Tom. Those are the things we missed when we didn't live here. Blessings to you and Tammy….come back for a visit!

    You said it all. What you said are the reasons why I will not leave Wisconsin The only thing that would make me is the political climate and all the attention focused here. I don't need the world's attention on this great state.

    But as you begin your new journey in Florida …may you and all be blessed with the good fortunes and rich gifts from God. Treasurer each day and live life to the fullest!
