About the author (2009)

I was born, in a small community in Michigan. At age two, I became an orphan, at age six I was adopted and at age seven, I was an orphan again. I was raised, educated, married and worked in Midwest States of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. I moved to Arizona and worked there till I retired in 1992. I moved to Green Valley, where I now read, write, do genealogy research on my roots, keep in contact via e-mail with my children and grandchildren in Hawaii and Colorado, and my friends and family in Florida, Michigan and Wisconsin.
