36 years with Country Insurance (Manager Computer Operations), last 11 years, drove athletic trips for Unit 5 late in the afternnon and weekends. Took vacation days to drive field trips to Chicago, St. Louis, etc. Due to medical reasons, retired from Unit 5 in Nov. 2009 after 18 years.

Lost my Prostate to cancer in 2001. In the past 3 1/2 years, have had 2 major spinal surgeries, an SCS tiral which was not successful, all kinds of drugs, deep tissue massage therapy for an hour 3 days a week and currently on Viciden and a strong dose of Morphine. I will need to take it for the rest of my life! Oh lucky me!

Even with all the pain, I look around and see just how blessed my life has been and still is. There are a lot of people a lot worse off than me. At least I can get around and enjoy doing things, but I sure miss my Bus students. I always looked forward to seeing them each say. My time with them was much more valuable than what money could have bought.

I wish all of you the best in your life and pray it will be long, filled with good health, wealth and most importantly, with love.

The 2nd picture is my 45 year old daughter. Doesn't seem possible, i was just holding her yesterday. the 3rd pic is me and my best buddy, my grandson Caleb, The pic of the two women, is my wife and her deceased mother. A man could never ask for a better Mother-in-law than Lela. May she rest in peace. The last pic is of Kathy holding our grand-kids, Kiely Kay Segobiano and Caleb Jack Jablonski. The pic of me suronded by all the girls, is the normal west basketball team. I announce home games and go with on away games and keep the score book for them. I do the same thing for the softball team. In the low right corner is our daughter Candace or Candi. she is Caleb's mom. The bottom pic is Caleb and his Dad, Sean. Then you see Caleb's greatest passion, his Hot Wheel's collection. I figure about 500 by now. He does not leave home without a small bag with some Hot Wheel's. The Picture of Kiely with her best friend while she was growing up. They would play for hours after school. Licorice had to be put down when Kiely was about 10 or 11.

Well Larry my dear old friend, God Bless you!
