I was born in 1953 in Dallas, Texas at a time when things that happened in the family stayed in the family. Keeping your mouth shut, or should I say keeping secrets were part of your legacy. This was not only a mandate by your parents, but also a must to fit into Society. This was my world as a child. At the age of seventeen I married the most wonderful man in the world. Thirty-four years later we are still truly in love. Out of that love we produced threebeautiful children. In turn they blessed us with nine healthy and robust grandchildren. My husband and I have now retired to Mead, Oklahoma on the quiet shores od Lake Texoma. The one important thing that you should know about me is that I walk with God and thank him everyday for all I have been blessed with. I wouldn't change a single day in my life, from birth through today. Yes, thank God we have all come out of our closets. Today we are not only taught by our parents to speak when we've been hurt, but we are encouraged and protected by Society when we do.
