Tom Keller and Sue Allen, of Newcastle, are pleased as punch to confirm that their grandson, Owen Samson Kramer, was born on Sept. 12. Kate (nee Keller, Lincoln Academy Class of 2001) and Aaron Kramer, of Washington, D.C., are the happy parents.
Owen weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces at birth and seemingly not quite ready for the event, although his mother and father, and Owen, are all now doing very well following a short stay at the George Washington University Hospital.
Owen’s uncle, Eben Keller, held him shortly after birth. “Bibi” Sue, Owen’s grandmother, who is a native South African, was heard to utter “he is some cunnin’” and everyone agreed. Eben smiled the whole time, and the first changing of the nappy was attended to by Bibi, Owen’s other grandma Jeanette, and Aaron. There are some 500 pictures available for viewing upon request.
