He mentions "retiring" to the South. If he is retiring now, how do you accomplish that at age 50? God bless him!!

To answer both Angry Bulldog and Terry - John and I are moving south because I am being relocated with my company and a great new opportunity for me. We have family in the South and have always wanted to live in warmer climate and planned to eventually "retire" in the south. Believe me, we are by no means retiring. This opportunity for me just came up and it was too good to pass up and just puts us years ahead of when we planned on moving. John also has family where we are relocating and after losing his mother two years ago, we are excited that we will be living close to his sisters. Angry Bulldog - thank you for recognizing all the hard work John has accomplished while he has been with the school system. He truly put his heart and soul into his job because we are both proud Stow alumni and are both life long residents of Stow. We will miss many of our friends and our family here and the great community that we live in but we are excited about this new chapter and adventure in our lives. John made a sacrifice to leave his job and SMFCSD for me to be promoted within my job. Sincerely - Janine (Howe) Daymon
