“We rejoice that there are 31 members of our immediate family, including daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren and their spouses, and five extraordinary great grandchildren. We have a wonderful family, all of whom are happily married, and all who are old enough to make a decision have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Our four daughters and their families are scattered in four different states and a number of different cities across the nation. Though we sometimes fall short, our goal is to see all of them each year.”  –  Jim & Anne
