Family & Friends

The close family consists of Beryl (my wife) and myself, living in France, and our daughter Caroline, her husband Francesco, and two daughters Anna and Julia, who live in Kanata, Canada, where Francesco works for the Federal Government and Caroline does freelance translations from Italian to English.

This is a photo of Alan and Beryl taken in July 2012
