This site was created to show appreciation for the lucky childhood I enjoyed in Houston, Indiana. I was raised by the best foster parents anyone could hope for. Albert & Dolly (Allie Akin) lived next to my Great-Grandpa Oscar Roddey. When I needed a home as an infant, they took me in for what was originally a nite or two. I was fortunate that they ended up being my primary caregivers my entire life. Dolly and Albert were the most important people in my life. They are in Heaven, but I feel they are continuing to guide me.
