Christine Gavlick-Fuller, BA, RN, CAWM was appointed the Health Maintenance Nurse for the Department of Veterans Affairs two years ago. And, she became a first time Grandmother in April! Baby Peter Ernesto was born to her son and daughter-in-law, named after both of his late Great-Grandfathers! Beyond blessed! My dear friend Jennifer Barbieri Casey ’98 and her husband Shawn are overjoyed with the birth of their daughter Tessa Anne (Class of 2039) on July 13, 2017. I attended Tessa’s baptism with my family on October 1, 2017. Congratulations! On July 8th, I got together with my fellow Memorial Hoodlums, Emma Frederick King, Kim Unseld, Jewel Smith ’96 and Quicha Tresvant Jones ’96 at Bo Brooks Restaurant in Baltimore, MD. We had so much fun catching up and laughing like time never passed. We have planned another outing in the near future. On August 6th, I attended the memorial service of a truly amazing Memorial Hoodlum, Dominique Bustamante Thayil ’97, in Frederick, MD with fellow alums Emma Frederick King, Jewel Smith ’96 and Quicha Tresvant Jones ’96. Many other alums were there in support of her family and friends. Dom will surely be missed! Please feel free to send me a message anytime throughout the year with your updates!
