Coming Home!

Hi South Westerners, and Location 19er's! 

For those of you that remember us, Anthony and I are returning! After four years away from Rochester,  we have decided to come "home". I have accepted a wonderful job in Fairport, and we will be back in the city by the end of July. Currently I am staying with a friend in the Beechwood neighborhood, and Anthony is still in Binghamton until we move. 

Anthony is doing better, but stills manages with extreme pain throughout…

A message from Shawn

Hey Location19er's! I just wanted to give you all an update as to what and where Anthony and I are up to. Many of you may remember that Anthony was not feeling well as we were planning our move out to Seattle in June. Well about 2 weeks before we were to drive across country he took a turn for the worse. We ended up moving to Binghamton NY where we have been staying with family for the last month and a half.

Anthony is doing better, due to medication, but is still in pain, and can not… Continue

A Message from Shawn about Location19

Dear Location19 members,

have listed our house for sale. I will be graduating at the end of May,

and for employment and educational reasons, we have decided that we

will be relocating to Seattle, WA this summer.

This was a hard decision to make, and we have been debating the idea since I started

school in 2006. But as you may know, the economy… Continue

"Hello friends,

As many of you already know, Bill Sullivan (son of Barb & Bill, husband to Juliet and father to daughters Molly & Josie) suffered a massive hemorrhage in his brain early yesterday morning. He has survived surgery to relieve the pressure and this morning has shown a couple of small but encouraging signs of responsiveness. His condition is still quite grave, however, and the family would like their friends and… Continue
