I'm happily married to my best friend these past 38 years. We married in 1973 and went to Turkey for our first assignment in the US Air Force. We were there a year and went to California for intermediate Russian. Our first son was born their. We went back to Turkey for 2 1/2 years and our 2nd was born. We went on the 7 churches of Asia Minor tour with the base chapel. We then went to Berlin Germany for 3 years and had 2 children their. I got to go shopping in East Germany. That was FUN!!! It was like using play money. We would exchange West Marks for East Marks in West Berlin. We went to England from Berlin. We thought, yeah, we will finally be in a country that speaks English! NOT. It was so different than American English but it was great fun. We had 2 children born their. Ernie & I would go on our days off to different historical sites and do family history research. We visited lots of fun places, castles, historic sites, etc. It was our most favorite place of all our overseas living. We then came back to the states in 1983. We were in San Angelo, Texas. We were there for 6 1/2 years and had 4 children. 2 are twins. We left there for our last assignment at Vandenberg AF Base May 1989. We were there for 2 1/2 years and had 1 child born there. My husband retired after 20 years and we moved to Hamilton, Missouri. We lived there 14 years and moved to Kidder, Mo 6 years ago in November. We love it here. We have 7 of our 14 children married, of 6 marriages we have 28 grandchildren month. I love being married to my bestest friend and hero. I love being a mother and grandmother. We still have 3 children at home. We have a missionary in the Seattle Washington Mission. I love life. I love my Savior Jesus Christ.
