When I was first elected 32 years ago I would never have realized how connected I would be to such a warm community of people. Many times I have been humbled by the kindness of your hearts.
I married Susan in February 13, 1971 and that was the beginning of a wonderful life for me. Susan was a beautiful person in more ways then one could ever think of. I love the smile on her face and the twinkle in her eyes always put a smile on my face. I couldn't think of anyone else I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. We only knew each other for three weeks when I asked her to marry me and I spent 42 wonderful blessed years married to Susan
