  6. Lauren girl – just found out from your grandmother Smith and Aunt Amy that you’re on this fantastic trip. I’m your aunt Charlotte (Shotz) – I was married to David Smith and Davo is my son – your cousin. What an awesome trip – I would say I wish I was you but I get slightly seasick! We live on the water in Port Charlotte, FL. The last time we saw you was at a Christmas get together at your dad’s home. You must be thrilled to be doing this trip and especially with someone you are such good friends with – have to be to be stuck in the middle of the ocean. Swimming with those whales had to be the thrill of a lifetime. Be safe and hope to see you both sometime in the future. Home phone is 941-350-7881 – email is bush912@comcast.net.
