What are your memories of high school?

When Slade caught me coming in the front door from skipping lunch. He asked me why I came in the front instead of the back. I told him because he was always in the back.

Did you ever skip school?

Too many times to count. I knew how to forge my parents signature!

Did you have a nickname in high school?

Not that I know of.

Did you have any nicknames after high school?


What did you do right after high school?

Too much partying to remember much. Then I found my husband (praise God), he was the only one that could make me settle down.

Where else have you lived?

Austin, Houston, Webster and Friendswood Texas
London England

What did you always want to do that you haven’t done yet?

Not much really except maybe finish any one of my books.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Spend time with friends and family.

What is your favorite book?

The bible

What is your favorite movie?

Under the Tuscan Sun

Biggest thing you would do differently if you went back to your time at BHS?

Be a good girl. Know the Lord more.


I married a wonderful man who has taken me around the world, which is what I always wanted to do. I have been to Mumbai and New Delhi India, the Taj Mahal, Moscow Russia, Sydney and the Blue Mountains Australia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, London, Paris, all over Germany, Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan Italy, Switzerland, Costa Del Sol and Barcelona. Spain, Canada, Yemen, Budapest, Lima Peru, Beijing China, Istanbul Turkey and Greece. Traveling around the world and then coming back and traveling America, I can safely say that America has it all. America is so beautiful! I received a degree in Operations Management from the University of Houston, but my husband wants me to stay at home so that I can go places with him. I was the president of our local chapter of Aglow (An International Interdenominational Christian group). People who knew me in High School would probably be very surprised how much I know about Jesus Christ. They would also be surprised that I taught CCE for years in the Catholic church. I am just an old married woman now. Criss and I have been together 27 years now. My daughter is now 25, graduated with a degree in finance and is now working at the same company as my husband. We chose for me to watch Cristine growing up rather than work (good thing, she had too many of my genes in her!), so we are not rich, but we are very happy!

I remember Gary coming by my house many nights after work.  We would just sit in his car in front of my house and talk for hours about life and dreams and whatever.  Some kissing was involved, but nothing else.  He was a gentleman and just plain nice to talk with.  I really don't remember what we spent those hours talking about.  Never really "dated", but the conversations were very enjoyable.  I hope to see him in heaven one day.

Sorry I will have to miss yet another reunion. As I remember, I was the one that wanted one every 5 years! We will be off on business/pleasure to Abu Dhabi and then Jerusalem beginning October 10th. You all have a wonderful time! Maybe next time.

Amsterdam visiting some friends.

Friends in Amsterdam. I keep up their website, missionwithavision.org. Look at the wall of this restaurant. They have been praying and walking Amsterdam for 3 years now. 1/3rd of the "Redlight" district windows have been closed down now and the majority of the government are Christians.
