We moved to Houston together with Rosemary’s daughters, Catharine and Claire, in August of 1983 when Irv accepted the position of head of the Division of Medicine at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

We soon began to wonder what we were doing in Texas and how we might survive it. During our first few weeks there we met another recently arrived couple, Josh Fidler and Margaret Kripke, who soon became our best friends… The Class of ‘83 was born!
