What have you and your family been doing since graduation:

We lived for two years in Staten Island, NYC where I was a clerk-typist at Brown/Richmond College. We moved to Largo, Md. where I was a clerk-typist at Andrews AFB, & Geiorge was a Deputy Sheriff for four years, having three daughters. George's job took us to Beecher, Wis. (75 mi. north of Green Bay) where he was a Minister for eight years & built a dome church on hyw. 41, and we had three more daughters, while I was a stay at home mom. We lived in Marlow, W. Va. (near Hagerstown Md.) & traveled w/ daughters singing, for one year until moving to Purcellville, Va. (Northern Va.) where George ministered for ten years, and I worked as a secretary and finally had our son. We moved to Lutz/Tampa, Fl. in 1997 where George ministered for five years and semi-retired. I worked as a teacher's aide, nanny for a family, and a school bus transportation assistant, during this time. We moved to Colorado Springs five years ago where I helped with grandchildren, was a school bus monitor, and am now a CNA and attend Pikes Peak Comm. College studying nursing. Since January I am residing with my sister, Ruth, in Rockledge, Fl. helping our mom.
