I have lived in Berea, Kentucky for the last twenty years and am a native of Tennessee. I am married with two children and eleven grandchildren. I retired from R J Reynolds Tobacco Company and I am currently working as a courier. My life-long love of gospel music began as a child in church. Later I sang in a family quartet (Southern gospel) with my parents and uncle. I am song director at the church where I attend. The musical instruments I play are piano, guitar, and dulcimer. I am an experienced vocalist, singing everything from bluegrass to classical music. I have been in other musical groups, the most recent being a western music trio.
