“I was born at the Naval Hospital, Jacksonville, Florida. My dad was a pilot stationed there and we moved when I was a year old. I have no memories of Florida but here is my story.

I enjoy genealogy and researched my grandmother’s life. Her name was Mary Jarman Hearn and she died when my dad was only 11. I never met her or any of her family. I found out that 30 years before I was born (1946) she went to nursing school at St. Luke’s Hospital, Jacksonville, FL around 1916. She is my connection to the place.” – Judith Hearn Culver

“I chose this photo because to me Florida is not what the stereotypes want you to believe. I was born in a small town and I spent a lot of my time at the beach and this picture captures what I see when someone mentions Florida. Clear sandy beaches, beautiful blue water and an endless horizon.” – Alex Baumgartner
