Hello from Colorado! I've been married for 27 years (to an LSU Cajun from Nawlins...), and we have a 23-year-old son. (I used to think people like me were OLD!!!)

I live with my family in country as beautiful as Heaven at the base of the Colorado Rockies, and I loved working as a trial attorney and later as a judge in Colorado for 19 years. With the help and support of family and friends, I successfully battled cancer in the late 90's, although I had to retire early due to other health concerns. These days, I enjoy making quilts and handcrafted toys, and I’m happy to be able to spend time doing genealogical research and working to continue my extensive family’s genealogical library.

I also love to read, especially American history and an occasional legal thriller. And, being married to a Nawlins guy, I'm a die-hard New Orleans Saints fan. Being a Saints fan was a little depressing there for a few years, but I've definitely been a faithful member of the WHO DAT Nation for lotsa years now. 8-)

Find-a-Grave is one of my favorite resources, and I've enjoyed navigating the site for several years now. I'm hoping to find time soon to become a photo volunteer.
