I like having visitors, but

I rarely have anyone visit me.

die and they will come to see you

I make it a point to keep in touch with many of my family and friends. I also make it a point to visit them, whenever they are available for and desirous of a personal visit. Even though “the street goes both ways” as has been said, it is the rare exception for anyone to reciprocate.

That being stated right up front, I say thank goodness for my sister Cheryl Ann Hansen Desgrange along with her husband, my brother-in-law Charles D. (Chuck) Desgrange, Sr., for my brother Ronald Einar (Ron) Hansen along with his wife, my sister-in-law Mary Grace Braatz Hansen, and for my cousin David L. Hansen along with his wife, my cousin-in-law Helen Neal Hansen. These are the folks who check in with me and make it a point to come to visit my wife Judy Rosenberg Hansen and me on a regular basis.

Cheryl and Chuck live an hour drive away. Ron and Mary live more than a two and one-half hour drive away. David and Helen live an hour and a half drive away. Dozens and dozens of other family members and friends live within a 15 to 30 minute drive away,  but rarely, if ever, come to my house to visit me or get together somewhere or another, with friends Maggie and Mark, who I dearly love and appreciate, being the biggest exception in that regard.
