One thing that no one knows about me is: I don’t even know it!

Now the hard one. Tell us what we need to know…50 years in the space below:

Life isn’t always easy financially, or health wise, but with God in control all things are possible. I became a Christian in 1982 and my outlook at life changed dramatically. Like many, I’ve lost both my parents, but stay in touch with my sister (HHS ’73). It is also nice to keep in touch with some old friends via Facebook and email. My retirement has taken a lot of work stress away so I am enjoying it more and more each day. God bless all who read this. Maybe see you next reunion!

Finally, if you had to do it all over again, I would…  Work harder to stay married, have a dog or cat, be nicer to people.
