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 are in grad school (or recently graduated): law, business, seminary. The gals are working and / or raising our grandkids.
