I spent a couple of weeks in Virginia, where I met our first great-grandchild, Andrew Thomas Cowan, who celebrated his first birthday Oct. 24. His proud parents are Bryan and Alice Cowan and his even prouder (if possible) and doting grandparents are Bryan and Andrea Schmitz Cowan, who reside in Fairfax, Va. Little Andrew thoroughly enjoyed his party and everyone who came to the celebration.
