I was born in Atlanta and never really considered living anywhere else. I did live in many areas of Atlanta including East Atlanta, Stone Mountain, Tucker, Chamblee, Marietta, Smyrna, Powder Springs, Lithonia, and Cumming. It wasn't until my daughter Katie graduated from high school did we decide to move to Hartwell, GA. My parents are now buried here, as well as my father's sister, Aunt Joyce, who moved to Hartwell just after we did.
Donna and I have been married for almost 40 years. We met in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church of Atlanta, got engaged 30 days later, and were married one year afterward. We have two grown children, Michael and Kate (including son-in-law Jordan Hedges), and three grandchildren.
We love living on the lake in Hartwell and moved here to help take care of my parents over a dozen years ago. Small town life is nice, where you see people that you know wherever you go. We love our church family at Liberty Baptist Church of Hartwell and has kept us content to stay in Hartwell, even though my parents passed away several years ago.
I'll continue to update you on my family in my blog, so please come back to visit often.
