Favorite quote: “One of my favorite quotes comes from the Bible. The book of Romans, chapter 8, ‘What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?’”

Strangest job: “The strangest job I have had was working at a cemetery changing their hand ledger bookkeeping system to a computer system. This included trying to explain to the CEO what the computer people needed and how the new system would work and try to tell the computer people what the others were thinking.”

Favorite place visited: “It is hard to pick out just one place of those I have seen. One of them is the Grand Canyon in Arizona. I can spend all day looking at the different formations. They can change as the sun moves over them. It is a place that can be peaceful regardless of how many people are around. The other place is Williamsburg, Virginia before they turned it into a theme park. There is an abundance of early American history to be discovered there.”
