    Best of luck to you in your move back to the states. I enjoyed being neighbors during my brief stay back on the island. Maybe one day we’ll meet up in South Florida. Hope all stays well with you!

    I’m so sorry to hear that you are having to leave St. John, but I can totally understand. Good luck with your next venture and give Aspen a “designer” Milk Bone from Cody! Safe Travels…..
