Here I am at a Seattle Mariners baseball game. I'm from Spokane & don't get over to Seattle to see many games so this time I bought tickets down behind the 3rd base dugout. Ken Griffery Jr was still playing w/ them. I've been married to my wife, Therese, for 30-yrs, & we have raised 2-daughters. They are now 28 & 25 yrs old & I have one 7-yr old grand daughter, Emma. I'm a retired civil engineer & worked for the City of Spokane my last 14-yrs prior to retirement. We own a home in Spokane where I was born & raised. I served 4-yrs in the US Navy Seabees during the Vietnam War & took part in the evacuation of refugees & American citizens from South Vietnam in April '75. I was very touch by Jessica Carscadden's story since she reminded me of my daughters when they were Jessica's age. My wife & I are born again Christians & know in helping Jessica in her efforts w/ our contribution of Care Bears is what the Lord would want. I pray that Jessica has a wonderful life & continues to help others in many new ways.
