I am so glad to have been contacted. Hope we can get to people from my class. Unfortunately, other than those still in the Community I have lost touch with them. Looking forward to re-establishing contact.

I would not trade a moment of the time I spent in training and as a member of the Passionist Community. "The Barn" was truly a special place that brings back many fond memories. I also was one of the fortunate few that got to live in "Grosse Pointe" the trailer that formed an annex between the Monastery and the Barn. The friends, experiences and memories from that time are still amazingly fresh in my mind. I look forward to hearing from more folks and hope to see everyone next year.

3138 E. Prince Road #5

Tucson, AZ 85716

(520) 465-8652

University of Arizona, Bellarmine, St. Thomas University, Houston, TX

3 years as an Emergency Services Dispatcher (Pomona, California), 4 years as a Director of Religious Education (Florida and Houston), 3 years as a caseworker, 3 years auto leasing, several years of pizza delivery and recently as a cab driver. Start as a caseworker for a behavioral health agency in Tucson on Jan. 5th, 2004.

Two ex-wives, two bankruptcies, five children. The youngest received a scholarship to Arizona State, two are prospering through the Internet. One has been in trouble with the law and the other, like his dad, has bipolar disorder.

I have very fond memories of the guys in Louisville. Not only because of the innocence of the time and the fun we shared but because those years were my last healthy years before the bipolar disorder kicked in at the end of my senior year. It has been a different kind of spirituality ever since. In spite of this, achievements have occurred. I single-handedly caught a serial rapist. Arizona's football coach used my plays to beat UCLA in 1990, 42-0, and USC, 38-3, in 1991 when they were #1. And I healed a dove which had been run over by a car; when I prayed and touched its wing it rebuilt itself from the bottom up. The next day I attempted to heal a crippled woman but only killed a tree in the process. Oh well. During my most recent bout of depression, I kept singing "Yes, I shall arise"—after all these years, that song remains with me still.

Yeah, that is me in the football picture on the left side holding on to the another guy's shirt.
