I have lived in Jacksonville, Florida all of my life even though I was actually born in Macclenny, Florida due to my Grandmother and a Midwife delivering me. Obviously no money for a hospital. Dad and Mom were both only 20 years old -
A lot of events during my lifetime - some good, some bad, some Wonderful and some tragic - just like everyone else. I went to three different schools before College. I married Earl Addison when I was 17 years old right out of HS and had three Children before I was 25 years old. A Daughter and two Sons. We would lose our oldest Son (middle child) when he was only 15 years old due to a motorcycle accident.
I divorced Earl when I was 34 years old and remarried when I was 36. My second Husband, Ray Cochran, and I have been married almost 34 years and we have lived in a house which is now 104 years old since our marriage.
I retired as a Federal Investigator a few years ago after 34 years of service. I loved the job.
Joining this site has helped me in so many ways because I like being able to communicate with people who have gone through the same things I have with regard to our loss of a loved one. It does help.
Currently, I enjoy fairly good health. We have Five Grandchildren and recently became Great-Grandparents to a Beautiful little Girl born in January 2012. God has been Good to Me and my Family. I feel in my Heart that one day (in the blink of an eye) All Families will be together once again.
