2000 to 2013

On April 19th 1995, My husband and his siblings lost both of their grand parents in the OKC bombing. Nate and I had not even met at this time. I was sitting at home watching the news, glued to the tv. I have never been one who watches the news or paid attention to what was going on around the world. I was glued to the tv. My mom kept asking me why I thought this was so interesting or important that I watch it all day long. I told her that I did not know the reason but I felt like my life depended on me watching this story unfold.

2 months later in June of 1995, I met Nate at Winn Dixie. In the next few months I learned that his grand parents were killed in the bombing in April. Years later I look back on those moments and realize how much that day changed my life and the lives of my future family. 2 People I never met taught and raised 4 Godly women who would raised 12 wonderful kids and many grandkids, nieces, nephews, cousins and in laws. I am so thankful every day for those two people. Dr Charles and Jean Hurlburt.

Here are some pictures of the memories we have made together!
