Nice job Tom. You know if you regrew your beard we could pass for relatives. But then maybe you have enough of them and who would want another old geezer in the family. Your story brings back great memories. Thanks.

You and your dear wife are two of the nicest people I have met in or out of diving--

It is an honor to call you two "My dear friends of the underwater world."

Look forward to seeing you soon

Interesting article. Thanks Capt. Makes me wonder how many other divers didn't get certified until a move made air fills difficult. I got certified in 80 when I moved to fl and was unable to get air.
