This photo was taken for a Good Shepherd Church Pictorial Directory shortly after we moved to Charlotte and I started at Good Shepherd in the summer of 1999.
Julie and I are now empty nesters.
Our daughter Taylor, 26, works in corporate communications and digital marketing for a health care firm in Nashville while our son Riley, 23, is on the staff for Campus Crusade For Christ (“Cru”) at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
He is also engaged to be married to Natalie Burke, with the ceremony scheduled for July 30 of this year.
