is Shirley. I met Shirley at my old job around Halloween,
1985. I was known for putting on a mask at Halloween in
the office. Shirley demanded I go one step further and

volleyball. I'll be playing defense, and SHE'LL do the

she'll be a model. Gabrielle Reece, MOVE OVER, here comes
Amanda!!! (Note in 2010: Amanda didn't become 6'3". She "only" achieved a 6'1" height :)).
- The other little girl
is Rebecca. As you can see, Rebecca is very young, so the

Since I first created this web page, back in 1997 or so, there's been a new addition. To left is Katie. Katie is a very cheerful and
bright young lady. She achieves top grades in school and is a delight to be with. Her future is a very bright one. Good luck Katie.
