Quick Note From Al Vigil
Yes it's that time in our lives when we have to stop and smell the Roses.
Gloria and I have been married 52 wonderful years Sunday the 18th. The day we found "The Field of Dreams, and The Ghost Players" in Dyersville, Iowa 17 years ago. All that has happened and our great memories, "All the money in the world could not buy that". We are thankful that at our age we still have the positive attitude that we have for each other. We wish you all the best for the rest of your lives.
God Bless You ! ! ! ! Gloria & Al Vigil
