Because he played there, they are his favorite pro team, in addition to our Dallas Cowboys, of course. He also loves cheering for our world champion Dallas Mavericks.

A Christian and a grateful believer in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, his three most important priorities are God, family and country.

A sincere believer in American exceptionalism. Mike considers the United States of America the greatest nation in the history of the world.

Our Miracle Grand Baby

In June 2015 our 8 month old granddaughter Zoee, was in Texas Children’s hospital with a deadly disease.  The diagnosis was grim.

My daughter never left her side for 6 months. Zoee was called back to the ICU several times.  Her parents showed great faith, as they endured this most difficult time.

Due to their faith, and the faith and prayers of thousands of family and friends all over Texas and beyond, God’s grace blessed Zoee. Even though she lost both her kidneys, today she is a vibrant, beautiful and growing little girl. A true miracle from Heavenly Father.  Waiting now for a new kidney.
