Yes! Attending Reunion

I'm sorry to miss the reunion but my mothers 84th birthday is Saturday and we will be attending her birthday party. I would love to see everyone but my mother given up her life for my brother and I. When my dad died while I was in high school, she stepped in an took over the roll of mother, father and provider. Then 10 yrs. later my brother was in a horrible accident and suffered a brain injury leaving him totally disabled. My mother continues to care for him today even after fighting through two types of cancer. She is truly amazing and I don't ever want to miss an event in her honor.

I have been in both the mortgage and title industry for almost 33 years. It's a crazy business but I guess the challenges it brings every day are why I loved it.

I've always had a special love for animals and about 18 years ago, I found a new love that I never knew existed. That was my love for parrots. My husband and I eventually became parrot breeders. I've hand raised and placed many, many different species of parrots into loving homes. I never sold to pet stores. We are no longer breeding but continue to have our and love our pets.

We also became very involved in Greyhound adoption many years ago and remain active in it today. Our animals have been a huge part of my life and I love it!

Family has always been the most important part of my life and I'm so blessed to have my son and grandsons remain in Tulsa so I could be a big part of their lives. My step-daughters and their children are all in the Okla. City area so we have been able to stay close to them also. My mother and brother still live in the same house we lived when I was in high school.

I've been married to Gordon, my second husband, for 33 years. He is retired from Tulsa Public Schools and is now a stay at home dad to all of our animals. (I'm very jealous) He was a professional bowler when he was younger and still remains active in that sport today. We have so much in common and he is not only my husband but remains my best friend.

I hope everyone has a wonderful time at the reunion. I sure hope it doesn't take another 20 years before we have another one.

Thank you Julie for all the hard work and many hours you have dedicating into putting this wonderful website together. You did an awesome job!
