Hello Roy Foster. Sorry to hear we have lost Cindy. Have been trying for years to track down some of you guys, just found the correct website.
I'm still flying around the Pacific, even in and out of Tuvalu, would you believe.
Currently resident in Vanuatu, working in Fiji.
Look forward to a response,
Kind regards, Norm Sanson

PS if anyone reading this knows where to track Rich McBride, now late 50s, ex pcv Tuvalu, please let me know

Try Richard Eugene McBride on Facebook.
I believe he is now in Hood River, Oregon.
This is Susie, his high school/college sweetheart. Tell him hello and hope this is helpful.
Good Luck!
