There are a few years after graduation that aren't worth mentioning, so I will begin with my service in Desert Storm. I served with the 527th engineers. When I got back home I went to bible school, then served as a youth pastor in Alexandria La. I live in East Texas now. (I am just across the sabine river from Logansport La.)I have pastored a church here for going on 9 years. I have a wonderful wife (Stephanie) and two girls (Jordan and Lilly). Our church(www.wofoc.com) has around 250-300 people in it with 6 full time staff people. My first book is at the publisher now it should go to print this summer. I am the same guy less some bad habits... like to hunt.. write..mountain bike..play softball with my girls..hunt antiques with my wife and drink good coffee from a big cup.
I didn't get to officially graduate from Ringgold (left Jr. year)but never considered myself a part of any other class. I can see as I approach 40 the best memories and friends I had in school where there with you all.
