Returned in May after my 5th complete world cruise. The first two I was the ships physician for Holland America. Now I go as a passenger. On one trip from Venice to Rome on the Windsurf for the Windstar line–as ship physician–a man came to the medical office and asked me if I went by the name of Ike. It took me awhile but then I knew it was Louis Boyle. I hadn’t seen him since his wedding 50 years before. We still communicate. His wife, Norma, is well. They live in Costa Del Mar. I was on the Windsong in Istanbul on 9/11.
