The Riggs Family Site


This is our family's website. Mary passed away on February 1, 2018, and her former class site now is used to honor her memory.

Site Content

  • christmas: Our family's Christmas photo cards going back to 1969, and Christmas letters from 1977. We wrote our first letter in 1977, at the end of our first year in England. The next letter was written in 1980, and then from 1982 to the present. They provide a window into our past, and remind us of things otherwise forgotten. The cards reveal the growth of our kids, arrival of our grandkids, and sadly, the departure of Mary in 2018.

  • galleries: Slide shows. First there appear four slide shows, dated from 2002 to 2007, that were created with JAlbum software. One introduces our lovely 2007 granddaughters Lucie and Tori. The three others feature Mary's participation in Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day walks. Next appear slide shows, with music, featuring events both old and new. These are created with Adobe software.

  • weddings: A link to Cathy and Kirk's wedding website along with information on Brian and Marion's December 2004 wedding, and the unusual story of their meeting in Africa. Photos of our five grandchildren also grace this page. Cathy and Kirk broke up in late 2010 and their divorce was final in late December 2011.
