I was born in 1953 of deaf parents, second of four kids. My mom died of breast cancer in 1982. My dad is 91 and lives in a rest home in Oregon City since he is so weak. Older brother Mike: severely retarded, died 2016. Sister Rose retired 2014 after teaching deaf kids for 32 years in Tucson, Arizona. Brother Rudy retired from mixing paint and lives next door to sister Rose. I got married in 1982 to Kristina. We hired Kristina’s daughter, Lilian, in 1994. Lilian has three boys: Thor, Lars and Magnus. We went swimming every week for many years. Thor and Lars have both worked in the office figuring out our hardware and software.
