On May 6, 1970, Susan and I were married in Gainesville, Texas. On that day the justice of the peace asked me, Will you, Jerry, love, honor, and protect Susan for the rest of your life, until death do you part?

I said, I will!

Almost forty years later, as I sat holding her hand, Susan said, I love my grandbabies so much. Jerry, you have to promise me you wont let them forget me. You have to make sure they know who I am. Please promise me youll do that for me.

I squeezed her hand and promisedI said, I will.

About the author (2011)

Jerry’s everyday world for most of his life has dealt in one way or another with oil fields within the Mid-Continent Region of the United States. For thirty-five years Jerry has provided services to oil companies exploring for and producing oil and natural gas in this area. Currently, much of his time is spent in litigation support associated with oil and gas operations and their impact on the environment.

For over forty years Jerry’s main concern in life has been for the well-being of his wife and family. Jerry and his wife Susan are the proud parents of three children and the grandparents of two precious granddaughters. For many years, friends have encouraged Jerry to write about his experiences in the oil fields and law offices he frequents. However, it was his love of family that inspired the writing of this book.
