School Story:

I got divorced last year and I realized that the last time I was in love, truly in love, was in High School. So, I looked up my high school love, and you got it... I was still in love. However she was happily married. So I set my standard to be that I wouldn't marry unless I found someone that would make me feel like she did. 2 months later, for the second time in my life. I fell in love. What I remembered most of high school was that first love and it was real, lasted 25 years and still there, I also found passion like I have never know last summer.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

I have a couple of life long friends that I still talk to sometimes.... wish I talked to them more. Laura who was in my class, and Karen who is a year older. they have been thru the bad times and good time and when we talk the years fade away and it is like we are at the park playing airplane in the tree...

What did you do right after high school?

I did nothing right untill I was about 33 years old, then I found Christ.

What do you do now?

I left Lovington, NM to start up a trucking terminal for Pradon Trucking about 4 years ago and I spend my days battling a severe downturn in the oil business. I make a lot of cold sales calls, visit with customers that have become dear friends and work to help my drivers make a living and stay married and happy....

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love the beach, I still love to swim, to read and I am totally addicted to my Wii..... Ravin Rabbids TV show and Dead rising chop till you drop... yes, I am still a dork....

Name 3 interesting facts about you.

I always have a hot wheel in my pocket... reminds me to keep a child like spirit... Jesus said only like a child can you enter the gates of Heaven... I took it literal... LOL!
I spent 13 years cutting on myself, started when I shot myself in my senior year of High school, and led to me finding Jesus.
favorite Bible story is Matthew 8:28 - took it personal that Jesus healed a demon possesed man who cut on himself with stones. In the book of Mark and Luke there is only one man, in the book of Matthew the author reports that there were two men and that helped me believe that I was special to God. Later I learned that we are all special.

Any grey hair?

Yes

Best memory of Odessa High School

my washing machine & my best friend Henry Hamburger, the sand hills, my mom and dad's flowered couch, my grey pontiac, my little toyota celica, one pump jack in particular, grandma's house during pep rallys, toga party, Air Supply, Barry Manilow.....

Pease Elementary and Bowie Jr. High
