I was looking for a picture, and found this one. Tom and I in Disneyland, we were with our marching band for a huge competition. I was a twirler, he was one of the drummers. We were very good friends, had so many good times together, he was the best friend I had at the time, and the only one who let me talk about my sadness over my mothers illness, we did begin dating shortly after this.
We have 8 children and have been married 37 years.
Five of our children; Fred, Terry (Anna), Eric (Melissa), Brian, and Julia are on their own.
Meghan 14, Kara 10, Amanda 10, still live at home.
Meghan, Kara, and Amanda have the diagnosis of Down syndrome.
We have three wonderful grandchildren; Mathias and Madeline (Terry and Anna) and Desmond (Eric and Melissa)
We feel blessed to have a large family.
