Tradition is what brings Barry Ford and his wife, Shirley Babilya, to Seattle every December. They drive their RV across country from Iowa to do a job they love in the town where Ford grew up.</p><p>This year, the couple is 1,849 miles apart. Shirley is home in Iowa recovering from a heart attack and Barry is on his own in Seattle this season. When some Seattle neighbors found out, they stepped in to help fill the void.</p><p></p> Wed, 19 Dec 2012 20:55:00 +0000 Liz Jones 5320 at http://kuow.org A Cross-Country Holiday Tradition
