Together we live in Henryville, Indiana. We have lived in this town for about eight years now. I work as a medical receptionist for a large doctor's office. We love living in the country and spending precious time with our kids. My husband loves to hunt and the kids have always been my hobby. My world revolved
around my two kids. I have learned to love and cherish Angels and I love candles. We lost Josh to suicide on the night of December 14, 1999. A night that has forever changed our lives. Josh was only 13 years old and is forever our Angel up above. This picture is not the most current of the four of us but it is a picture that I will always cherish and hold dear to my heart.
