Comments:

I have written and illustrated 90 children's books, with about 9 million copies sold worldwide. My most successful book has been "How Do I Love You?" which has sold two million copies. Other popular titles of mine include, "I'm Thankful Each Day!", "That's What A Friend Is!" and "Heartprints."

I have just written my first book for adults, called "A Life That Matters: Five Steps to Making A Difference." It will be available in April 2012.

Also, I have been a Christian Pastor for the past 15 years and have my own small church, Joy Chapel Christian Fellowship, in downtown Ashland.

School Story:

My favorite memory is when my brother Mike and I, along with Mike Masin and a couple of other guys, went up on the hill behind Taft one dark Friday night and carved a huge T in the dirt with some shovels! That T stayed up there for about the next 20 years!

Happy Birthday, Curt! So glad we’ve remained lifelong friends. I can’t think of anyone I would rather to-and-fro walk with, but I would settle for a nice long talk! ????????

Hi Renee! I’m wishing you a Happy Birthday a little early because I didn’t want to take a chance on forgetting to. Just so you know, you were always one of my very favorite people in all of Taft. I hope you feel as special as you are. Please have the happiest of birthdays! Your lifelong friend, Pat????

That is, the Four Feudal Nobles. Sorry.

By the way, Mike, we are the last two of the Four Feudal Lords. We should get together sometime. If you’d ever like to talk, you can reach me at 541-261-1608. God bless you, dear friend.
