12/06/2003  Entry by son, Michael Weaver  Greetings, I was born at the airbase hospital in Châteauroux in Feb. 1958. My father, Charles Oneal Weaver, originally from Alabama, worked at PMEL (the lab), my mother Colette is from Liverpool, UK. Her twin sister, Frances also married a "yank", Richard (Ritchie) Hoffman and also had a son, Steven in 1958 at the base hospital. Any of you remember any of us? I visited Châteauroux last year, saw the house where my parents lived when I was born (16 rue de la republique) and visited Nouvelle Galleries where my mom and her sister used to shop in town. I was very impressed by the vibrant, well maintained small city Châteauroux is. In 1977 I returned to Paris to study and left France in 1982 but visit at least once a year.  I'd love to hear from anyone who may remember any of my family.
