School Story:

Enjoyed being in the band and on the wrestling team, playing in and winning chess tournaments, and getting to know and love some of my classmates. I am more appreciative now of the dedication of our teachers. My younger daughter, a high school teacher, says, "Teaching is the hardest job I ever had and the one I like the most!" Grateful to John McWilliam for organizing Christian meetings on campus and inviting me to a Billy Graham meeting at the Cow Palace where I went forward to follow Christ.

Coolest Thing you ever did:

Prayed and asked God if I could trust the Bible. He answered, "I wrote that Book."

What do you do for fun?

I love being an encouragement to the elderly and infirm at the care centers I have been privileged to visit almost very weekend for the last three decades.
