My wife (of 35 years) and I met in Dallas, and have also lived in Bakersfield, Los Angeles, Plano, Orange County, Anchorage, and Joplin. Yes, we were here for the massive 2011 tornado.

We have three great kids, two daughters-in-law, a son-in-law, two granddaughters and two grandsons. The three guys recently graduated from grad school or will soon (one each from law school, business school, seminary). The gals are working and / or raising our grandkids.
