I am a Christian father of four grown adults, I have seen God’s grace and mercy in my life. I attend church regularly with my family. I am happily married for 42 years this year (2013), to my wife, Anne. I enlisted with the U.S. Army, and was with the 1st Calvary, rank of SP4, in Vietnam and was medically honorably discharged receiving a Purple heart and a Purple heart with Oak Leaf cluster. I met right Anne after I got home from Vietnam in 1970, at a local college party, May 20, that was being held at a local forest preserve. She had shared she had prayed for a Vietnam veteran, I then said that was me. I later told her I wanted to marry her that day. Just short of one year on May of 1971, after we met, we did. She is a woman of great faith and love whom I share this life with. Having been a Vietnam Veteran, we are continuing the process as a couple of overcoming the statistics, as my wife said I have included in books I am writing, please see the Books and Audio available page. That, along with having a severely and profoundly disabled daughter, Gayle. We have four grown adults. Our first born, Rebecca and our second newborn, Robert, then our third sibling, Mariel, was married in 2007, to Ronell and gave birth, in 2010, to a son named Levi and have another baby boy, Micah, born in August, 2012. They have another son, Nadir, who turned 15 this year (2011). Their third sibling. a boy, Josiah, in Sept of 2014. And our last born, Gayle, who, as I say, “I believe I would not be the person I am today”; she is our “special child”. I received my Associates in Theology, from I.C.E., 8/13/2006 and licensed as a Minister from Oasis Christian Church, 9/16/2012.
