About me

Occupation Unemployed
Location Flint, TX, United States
Introduction My red hair is long gone unless I buy it and that's a pain in the rear. Most of my friends called me Pat. My maiden name was Byrd. Joanna is my eldest daughter, I gave her up for adoption. She was adopted by Mary Carolyn Wiese and her husband in Houston TX right after her birth, 7/21/70. They eventually moved to the Chicago area where Joanna grew up. Joanna had a child, a liitle girl. On Valentines day 1997 Joanna's boy friend and father of the child, Larry Fillung, murdered Joanna. This grandchild of mine would have been 2 or less when her mother was killed in 1997. I do not wish to invade or radically change this child's life in anyway, I would just like to contact the child and be her grandmother in TX. If anyone out there can help me. You will be in my prayers forever. James is my son and Mari Ann, my youngest daughter. I cannot imagine my life without either of them. Without Chipper(James' nick name) and his wife Tammi, life would be hooohummmm, he has the task of raising 11 of my grandchildren. without Mari Ann and her husband Shawn my life would be lacking 2 of my grandaughters and lots of fun. I thank my Lord and Savior everyday for these gifts.
Interests My favorite things in my life are my: God, 3 children, 14 grandchildren. Currently I am unemployed, but I volunteer at a free clinic, love what I do there and the people I work with....Wish I could find a job that wouldn't interfere with my volunteer career.
Favorite Movies Love watching the 40's, 50's and 60's musicals like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain, my newest favorite is Mama Mia. I also like a movie called Purgatory, this one kinda makes you think.
Favorite Music I turn up the volume and sing to the Goldin' Oldies (Rock and Roll and Country)music in my car at 70mph, with the windows rolled up
Favorite Books Love, Love Love, cookbooks! At one time I had probably over a 100, would have had more but my cookbook budget was limited. Now my library has been scaled down so I only have about 50.
