Arizona is in the news again, and not for any good reason. I know that there are folks firmly on each side of the immigration bill debate, and I hate that people are proclaiming Arizonans as racial bigots, because folks, that simply is not true. Furthermore I would love to point out to the myopic that the people of Arizona did not pass the immigration bill, our government did so without nary a query to it's populace. We believe it was a knee jerk reaction to the murder of a prominent rancher who lived near the Arizona and Mexico border. Of course our porous borders have been an issue for decades.
For the first time in a long time I am ashamed to tell people that I am from here...
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.
