While in Missouri, I met a woman named Bree. We were connected through a couple that we worked with at our two different jobs. I was fixing cars at the time and she was fixing eyes as a nurse technician at a retinal specialist. Bree is one of the three best things that have happened to me. We got married on New Smyrna Beach, July 4th (lucky me, that’s a date I can remember). We have two children. Our oldest is attending the University of Missouri. She is working on her Journalism and Business degrees. She stays busier than I do with all of the extracurricular activities she is into with school while also holding down a job. Our son is a great student, Scout, and teammate. He is (almost)always open to learning new things. I think that is why his coaches get along with him so well. He is a joy to be around and reminds me of what life is really about.
