Born 1933, Tampa. Mother, Ruth Irene Mellick, born 1915, Tampa. GrandMother, Eugenia Adalaide nee Floyd, 'yankee', born 1882, in North Florida. Gramdfather, Benjamin, an Irishman. Two sons, Patrick, deceased. One surrogate, Westley who acquired a lovely daughter for me, Wendy. Together they gave me three beautiful grandchildren, Kendal, Taylor and Dean.
I have been blessed with the best family and the very best friends in the whole wide world. I'm a very lucky, happy person.
I am wealthy beyond worldly goods and humbly thank "Our Father" for my good fortune.
