My son, Allen and his wife, Muriel just moved to Austin,TX. He works for a management company, she is a kindergarten teacher, they have a sweet puppy Kia, and they will be having my first grandchild in January! My oldest daughter Taylor is a nurse at St. Jude and married to William, a banker. They have a precious puppy Wrigley! Morgan, my middle daughter, is a nurse at Baptist East in Memphis.  My youngest daughter Samantha graduated from Mississippi State  with a degree in nutrition and is planning on becoming  a dietician. She is also busy planning a September wedding! We are a busy and blessed family!
