Here are my favorite memories of Ali from 1994 and 1995.
Practicing at the ice rink.
Challenging Takashi (Japan) to a game of tennis.
Dwarfed by a Clydesdale at the county fair.
Lifting weights with my son and me!
Ali and my son, Allen--both excellent cooks!
And here he is today! Still cooking--the famous Chef Ali!
With his wife and son. What a beautiful family!
Happy 31st Birthday, my dear 'son' from Turkey. You've done very well and your American 'Mom' is downright proud of you!
