I know I have been gone for a while, so I want to tell you why. Over 9 years ago, doctors told me because of the degenerative disc and bone disease in my back, that i would be confined to a wheel chair in 3 years. Most of you know that I beat that mark. Unfortunately, about 6 months ago, that diagnosis came to be a reality. I have no feeling in my right leg up to my hip and i have no feeling in my left left leg from the knee down. I am now confined to a wheelchair. Not to worry, Determined_me my wife and I and our children are working through it day by day. We are working getting our house renovated to be wheelchair accessible per ADA standards. As you mat have guessed, this is not going to be cheap. Fortunately. many of our friends in our congregation have been able to get some of the materials donated and they will be donating their time to do the work. They are still things left that we need to purchase. Living on social security makes that a HUGE challenge. I do have a page for donations if any of you were so inclined to do so at Thank you for your continued support as we work toward surgery.
