Sentimental Sunday: Cousin Tom and Kids in the Cockpit, May 1994

Recently I got a message in LinkedIn that said my first cousin, Tom Streff, "is having a work anniversary.  29 years this March at American Airlines."

Wow!  I know Tom always wanted to be a pilot, and I'm so glad he achieved his goal.  I'm not too fond of flying myself, but when I do have to fly, I try to stick to American, and pretend Tom is flying the plane I'm in to calm my nerves. :)

Here is a cute picture from May 1994, almost 21 years ago, of Tom in the cockpit with daughter Katie and son Andrew.

Congratulations Tom on your work anniversary!  And thanks to Tom's beautiful wife Karen (who celebrates a birthday tomorrow) for sending this picture to my parents so many years ago (and to Mom & Dad for saving it!).  Tom and Karen are wonderful Christians who kindly opened their home to me nine years ago when I was finishing up library school at the University of North Texas and needed a place to live for a few months.
