My daughters, Mackenzie and Miranda and husband, Bill are the highlights of my life. Mackenzie is a 31 years old living in San Diego where she is a performance dietician and tennis pro. She is married to Mike Hatch, a Navy helicopter pilot. Miranda is married to Anthony Scalabrino, a Navy pilot. She has a Phd from the University of Florida School of Medicine.

Got to love my non-human babies Joel, KeeTee, and Buttercup.
