I should have died from my accident underground in 1992 when I was buried by a ton of rock, but death eluded me. I have learned to deal with the type of pain that has no mercy. I was born again in 1996. Now, God gives me all the things I always thought I had to obtain on my own. I am happier than I have ever been before in my life. I still have the pain, but I don't care any more...and that makes all the difference in the world. What I have is exactly what I was meant to have all my life. We must be very, very careful as we traverse our lifespan to not miss the opportunities that God puts in our path. That person that slows you down on your way to work...yeah, the one you are honking at...may be put there by God so you miss being in an accident. Think before you act...nothing happens by chance.
Denise and I have five children between us, nine grandchildren, and one great grandchild. We have both worked over 7,000 feet underground and in open pit coal mines. Now we ride our '07 Harley Ultra Classic. Life is good.
