and there were approximately 638 people living there a few years ago. There
were probably not that many more when I lived there. I knew
everyone and they knew me. Docena is on the map now, but you

because it yet helps to keep me strong!
Alabama prepared me educationally with the
exception of my Master of Science degree from The University
of Tennessee. I currently live in Harvest, Alabama, a county
area near what is better known as Huntsville-The Rocket
City. I began my professional career with Ford Motor Company
which is where I learned to never assume anything! I now call such experiences, Wisdom Episodes.
My life however; after Ford began to take several unexpected

effects of multiple myloma cancer. The faith and strength she exhibited rivals any I have witnessed in my life. She died
on February 28,1981. Few days since have passed when I have not thought of her and all that she imparted to me.
second experience was the tragic death of my husband,
Captain Robert King in 1985. He and 247 other young soldiers died
in the name of peace.

Get Me Thru Collection® and The Voice of
My Boundaries. The two publications have become a part of the most rewarding gift from my journey.
I learned how to 'ignite the power of inspiration' through them.
My purpose in life is now clear because of them, thanks to the voice that gave them to me.
let me say, my dearest accomplishments include being the mother
of Sterling, my only child, being an adult Sunday School Teacher, my grandson Amari
and being a friend to a few very special people.
is that you too gain from the voice of
my boundaries and through it bless countless others...
