met Lori in San Antonio Texas at church when all the little old ladies
felt compelled to become match makers. They pushed it pretty hard too.
The thing is Lori and I had already been kind of dating before they took
notice, but we didn't let them know. We let them have their
entertainment. It was cute. We liked each other so much that we decided
to make it permanent on 9 July 1995. Lori's occupation is a Christian
school teacher. She was a teacher at the San Antonio Seventh Day
Adventist Junior Academy at the time. Now the thing is, that when we
met, she was just as displaced as I was. She originally is from
Washington state but it was her getting hired in San Antonio that put

The second, Heidi Elizabeth,

Hannah (born in 2002), "thinks she
is the boss. She is also the one that is the loudest and most
opinionated. She's a little pistol."
As of 10/28/07, "I'm currently supervising

promoted to E-7 which is MSgt which means Master Sergeant which means I

As of 2001, "I am currently a Staff

just to keep them flying."

named "B.J." ("No family is complete without a filthy,
lazy, scared of every stranger it meets dog. No cats though. I don't
have much use for cats. We wound up getting him in July of 1995. I was
having a lapse in creativity for names at the time so I called him B.J.
which stands for absolutely nothing at all. He is a full bread beagle
runt that sleeps 90% of the day away, only getting up on his feet
occasionally to go outside or lap up some water. Although, whenever the
door bell rings, he's the family greeter to get to the door first.")
|In our senior
yearbook, Jay listed "Engineering" as his future career path.
(Copied directly from the Senior Yearbook):
|J. P. Wild Willy ... Whoo! Mr. Segro
... Contemplating the weekend ... Good Luck Steewie and Deewie ...
Gumbie ... Oh, no, I can't be fired again!
|Info from Jay's
|In February of 2000 I exchanged some
emails with Jay’s sister, Julie, who informed me that Jay has been in
the Air Force since graduation and looks a LOT different than he did
back in ’86. Julie was in our class until 9th grade. Her email
address is firstname.lastname@example.org
|Chris Mal Notes:
|Jay and I always had fun dialog and
we always seemed to find each other particularly amusing. I remember
insisting constantly that Jay was "fired." I never did figure
out what job he was doing for me, but I fired him every time I saw him
anyway. This may not seem funny to you, but it busted me up at the time.
According to a letter that Mindy Snyder got from Jay's wife, Lori, in
mid-January, 2002, Jay has been sent off to Afghanistan to help in the
efforts to fight the war against Terrorism.
