But I have been blessed with the privilege of getting to be a stay-at-home Mom for most of time that we've been a family. Personally, I am very interested in learning more about the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith. The difficult times I have experienced have only motivated me to get back to basics, and made me appreciate my parents' legacy as Bible Believers, and caused me to greatly appreciate the Torah, laws or counsels of God. We plan on staying where we are and continuing to raise our kids and support them until they are independent.

Occupation:  Stay at home dad
After I graduated Lamar with a BFA (Graphic Design), I had a hard time finding employment in that field (thanks to the dot com crash and 9/11).  I got married (Aug 2001) to a wonderful woman, Kristen Rabe, a pharmacy tech at the Groves Wal-Mart, and a year later, we had Isaac.  Since I had an Art Degree and an family to help support, I became employed as a delivery driver at the Groves Dominos Pizza  After a about two years of that, I found a graphics job with a small legal support company in Houston.  It would have been a much better experience had it been one of the larger, more established companies since after about a year and a half, my company failed and I got laid off. This was a blessing in disguise since most of my wife's family lives up here in the Fort Worth area and her sister was able to get her a well paid position with good benefits at a large PBM (ie mail order pharmacy).  Last September (2005), the 29th to be exact, we found out that our 4 year old son has Type-I Diabetes. For those of you who don't know, that's the insulin dependent type.  He gets a shot and a finger stick with every meal and a separate shot at bedtime. It's been a challenge but we're doing fine.  Isaac took it well and now he just about tells us how to do it.  He'll certainly correct you if he thinks your going to forget something.  Just so you know, we suspected something was wrong when he suddenly began having a bed wetting problem and a constant thirst.  If you know anyone with kids that develop these symptoms, have them checked out. Check .
I am currently applying at a job that will utilize what I learned in the Navy.  I'll leave an update here when I find out how that goes.

I would love more..but don't know if it is in the cards. Sometimes 3 seems
like more than enough for anyone but then babies are so sweet. My last job was as an NT network support specialist, sounds important right? Hardly! But it paid the bills for a good while:) Haven't worked since I had the last two girls. Drop me a line, would love to hear from you guys.

Occupation: Used to be LAN administration/small computer support IT type, but now am blessed to be a full time mom. I went to Port Neches elementary & middle school, but moved to Oklahoma in 1982. I'm really surprised at how many names on this list I remember! Kirk Frederick, Scott Palmer, Lanie Comstock, Rayna Harvey, Tina McGee, Scott Bordonaro, Lori Purgahn...the list goes on. I live in north Texas now (since March 2001) with my husband, Bill, and our 2 children (Jenny 1998 & Tyler 2003). Bill and I served in the US Air Force together. He's now retired from the military and is an engineer doing a lot of testing/development & I'm a stay at home mom. I'd love to hear from former classmates. The last people I've had contact with were Shalene Melling and Rochelle Perrio, and that was in high school! Anyone know what happened to either one?

Howdy 1987 friends! Hope everyone is doing wonderful! After grad, I worked full time, earned a degree and finally met the man of my dreams. I married Samuel Dockens who graduated from TJ in 1988. We are still trying to get him to buy a purple shirt…any suggestions? Help! We spent our one year anniversary holding our 3 week old miracles: twin sons, born 1-15-02…Daniel Jacob & David Joseph! Those little guys rock our world…we love being their Mom & Dad! After their birth, I quit my clerk job at the post office (no, I didn’t “go postal”) and started working from home so I could be at home with my sons. It’s been VERY fast paced since, in which I know you all can relate! I’ve been “running into” several classmates lately and it has been so incredible talking with people that I’ve known most of my life. It’s brought me back to a time when things were simple, safe and life was not so hectic. We all keep so busy that we forget what’s really important sometimes! Our reunion will be this year and I look forward to seeing all of you again. Have your best day today! Love, Jo

Occupation: Electrical Engineer
Living in Houston with my wife Masae, no kids. I graduated from Lamar University in May 1997 with a BSEE and we have lived in Houston ever since. I work for an EPC company and my wife works for M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
Here is some background before I started college. Right after high school I enlisted in the navy (’88 – ’92). After boot camp in San Diego I served at two duty stations; shore duty on an island called Adak in Alaska (’88-’90, not a high point in my life) and two years on a destroyer (USS Fife) homeported in Yokosuka, Japan (’90-’92). I didn’t like shipboard life but I loved the travel. We visited ports in Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, and four ports in the Persian Gulf (Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, and Jebel Ali); but we mainly went to Subic Bay, Philippines and Korea. We went to Desert Storm and were one of the first units to fire at Iraq when the war started (we launched 20% of all Tomahawk missiles during the conflict). It sounds funny but those navy ad’s that say….”it’s not just a job, it’s an adventure”… were right. I experienced more on that destroyer in two years than I will in the next twenty. I was honorably discharged in May of ’92, and married Masae in Nov ’92. In 2005 we finished our mortgage and are completely debt-free. We have since celebrated by taking four trips to Europe (France, Spain, Greece, and the U.K.) and one
trip to Hawaii. God bless America and our troops who are maintaining the freedom we all enjoy.
