AT THE TABLE WITH: Jose De Los Santos

In 2001, at the age of 13, Jose came to the United States from the Dominican Republic. He joined his family living in Brooklyn, N.Y. He was the middle child of three children in his immediate family. There is a younger brother and an older sister. But a large extended family are in the area. As a kid, he and his siblings were grateful for whatever had available to them – imply games and play, not high-tech items found today.

AT THE TABLE WITH: Sam Traten

Prior to meeting for this interview, I had the opportunity to read Sam Traten’s memoir, “Ex Post Facto.” One thing that seem to run through the memoir is his quest for knowledge and himself.

Sam was born in 1940 and grew up in a blue collar working class neighborhood of Philadelphia. His parents were Sam Sr.

AT THE TABLE WITH: Karen Johns

You can feel the love and love of life as soon as you step into the Second Avenue home of Jim and Karen Johns. The first time that they saw this home was when they were checking it out for a relative to purchase. Two steps into the door and Karen knew this was her home. The clincher to buying the house was that it was across the street from Reeves Park, home to the annual Dogwood Festival.
