I grew up with one half brother, but had four older siblings from my dad’s previous marriage, though I was in Oregon and they were in Texas, and I almost never saw them. I am in email contact with all of them now.
Nanci my wife is my best friend. We met and had our first date when in high school, on December 7, 1968. We saw the original Odd Couple in the theatre that night. Nanci’s terrific. She’s God’s gift to me.
Nanci and I have two daughters, Karina and Angela, and they are both married to wonderful guys named Dan. One Dan is a middle school teacher and coach, the other is the teaching pastor at Life Bible Fellowship in Upland, California. Angela is an emergency nurse, but is mainly the mother of two, Jake and Ty. Karina is mother to Matthew, Jack, and David. Nanci and I are very close to our daughters and sons-in-law, and to our grandsons.
