This site is dedicated to my family, past,present and future.
To my ancestors who worked and sacrificed and did the best with what they had to raise their children to have a better life than their own.
To my grandparents, who all instilled in me the value and faith in God and family.
To my parents; to my father who I never got the chance to know, his love and guidence was felt by me through each step of this journey to find my roots. And to my mom, who taught me that you can overcome any obstacle or heartbreak if you believe in something enough.
To my husband, Owen and my children, Brandon, Bryan, Laura, Paige and Willie. For their support and encouragement and their love.
And to the future generations, you will find your beginnings in these pages. I hope after you read the stories of the ones who came before you it will leave you with a feeling of pride in the familes that paved the path to you and who you are.

A Special Thank You
