Comments:

After RHS, I attended Eastern New Mexico University with Tommy and finally graduated in 1971 with double major in elementary classroom and music. I taught school 5 years in several different cities as we moved around quite a bit with Tommy’s work. Then I semi-retired from teaching to raise boys.
Our first son, Sean, (named for Sean Connery as pictured in our yearbook) was born 10 weeks premature in 1968 weighing 3 pounds 7 ounces. Thanks to God he had no problems and grew to be a strong healthy boy then man.
Our second son, Cole, was born in 1977 in Roswell and then Tim joined us in 1979 in Kansas City, Missouri.
I love the boys for sure but was definitely outnumbered with the guys and still "suffer" from being the only female in the house. Oh well, God did see fit to bring wonderful young women across my path through the years with whom I had great relationships, including my daughters-in-law.
I had a great experience homeschooling our two youngest sons for 6 years. I think I had a lot more fun than they did but they DID like being able to sleep a little later on most days. Our favorite time was when Tommy was singing at Epcot Center at Walt Disney World in Orlando. We took field trips to all the parks frequently and found ways to count it as school. When Tim and Cole decided in junior high that they wanted to attend regular school, they did so quite successfully.
I joined the corporate world in 1972 and worked for 10 years for INVESCO mutual fund company and worked my way from receptionist to vice president. It was a great company to work for and offered lots of growth opportunity. Really learned a lot about myself during that time and consider it a great privilege to have worked there. When they wanted me to move to Atlanta, Tommy and I opted out so we could live closer to our kids, who were all located in the Dallas area.
So we have been Texans since 2001 and loving it.
I partnered with our oldest son for 5 years owning and running a Medicare home health care agency. It was what you call “the best of times and the worst of times.” I did find out that I am not cut out to be a business owner and got out to see what else the world offers.
Since then have worked for hospice company, investment firm, and now myself again as consultant and free lance book keeper. I have found that it does take a village to raise and care for children these days so mostly, Tommy and I spend time with our 6 (soon to be 7) grandchildren and love it.

Updated 10/22/15 - Still recovering from the great time at the reunion with the most wonderful people in the world!! Tommy and I had a BLAST!!
This week is our 48th wedding anniversary and my 68th birthday. It's a great time to reflect on life. What a blessing!!!!

Now have 9 grandchildren, which we think are the greatest in the world! I'm working part time from home doing chart audits for a hospice and Tommy is singing 2-30 times a month at various community events. Lots of assisted living, independent living and memory care communities as well as churches and a local winery. And of course, I'm his driver for those shows.

I have to brag on Tommy Ray (that's his "stage name"). Even though his loss of most of his sight has made his life difficult, he continues to amaze me with the diligence with which he keeps on going. He has to work so very hard to see everything but he still searches and downloads music for his shows, memorizes every song, mows the yard, and keeps the umpires on television baseball games in line.

He is a great husband, father and grandfather. Much loved by many.

We hope to see our Roswell friends any time they make it to north Texas.

It's been too long since we saw each other. Maybe you can make it to the Dallas area some day soon and we can catch up face to face. I'm wishing you the most blessed birthday ever and just saying, "I'm sure glad you were born!"
Love you, dear friend.
