Email finally arrived. To my surprise Jared is being transferred. We thought for sure his comp was going because he had been in the area for 6 months already. Jared is going to Cullman, Alabama. This is north of Birmingham on I-65 (about halfway between Birmingham and the Tennessee border). He seems to be excited about it. I guess when I was young and serving a mission I was excited about changes also. Now that I am older and much more cautious, I don't like changes very much. I hope this new area receives him well. He really liked the Ward he was serving in. This will be much more rural (but still not as rural as places I served).
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
