Our son Eric planted a non-denominational church in North Tampa, and we have been helping him with that. More recently (since July 2008) Paul has accepted to be a part-time pastor at a non-denominational church in Nobleton, FL. I help out now at both churches on the weekends. I am a full-time data processer at Patel Elementary School, on the campus of
The University of South Florida (USF) and enjoy that very much. I am also a chaplain with Marketplace Ministries USA. I visit people at their work site, and help them with any spiritual problems they have. I visit staff in 7 hotels in Tampa. We are very pleased to still be busy, and to live near most of our children and grandchildren. Our daughter Karen adopted 6 children. One is handicapped, (she suffered a stroke in her birth mother's womb). This gives us 13 grandchildren and our oldest daughter Karen's oldest had a girl who is now two, and is expecting any day now, she was due Aug. 18th. (Our first great-grand baby)
