I grew up in the small town of Dickinson, Texas located between Houston and Galveston, attended Nursing School at the University of Texas, Galveston, moved back to Dickinson for a brief period, and eventually settled in the Golden Triangle of Texas.
The Golden Triangle is the areas in and around Beaumont, Port Arthur and Orange, Texas. The town of Bridge City is part of the Golden Triangle.
In the fall of 2008, “Hurricane Ike” caused massive flooding in Bridge City. Besides ruining our home and its contents, we lost family heirlooms, books, valuable papers and pictures which can never be replaced.
Following the storm, friends, Mitchell and Sunny Chesson, were kind enough to allow us to live in their lovely home until we made the decision to relocate instead of rebuild. Although these and dear, lifelong friends are greatly missed, we feel blessed to have settled in the beautiful, friendly (now our) hometown of Minden, Louisiana.
