A Continuing Honeymoon
Mike and Robin Gann were still waiting to take their "real" honeymoon. For their first, in July, they "eloped with the kids," Ms. Gann said, and went to St. Simons Island off the coast of Georgia, about 300 miles from their home in Atlanta.
Both had been married before, and this time they wanted to make it a family affair. First they went to St. Simons, where Mr. Gann had spent time growing up, then it was Disney World.
So it was a honeymoon, and it was not. But a sequel was planned. "The honeymoon was not over, not over at all," she said. "We were going to take another one this April. We were targeting for the south of France."
Claude Michael Gann, who would have turned 42 this month, was a salesman for Algorithmics, a software company based in Toronto. He had had many jobs in sales and finance, but in this one he was starting to feel settled. "It was in risk management," his wife said. "It was on a different level than he had had before. He liked the place he went to, he liked the people he worked with."
The only thing he did not like about the job was all the travel. On Sept. 11 he was at the Risk Waters conference at Windows on the World.
