All that I am, and have to give, is the sum total of all of my life experiences. My soul, or inner being, is impacted by even the most chance and brief encounters. So, I’d like you to meet the very first people who impacted me, my biological family. Here you’ll see my parents and brothers and sisters. I’m one of seven, but only five of us lived past childhood. I’m in the middle: Michael, Kathy, Brian, Tom, and Maureen.
