Well, Boys and Girls, if you’re reading this it’s Adios!

I was born to J. Dale and Agnes Sandland Folker on November 26, 1944.  I have 6 siblings:  Linda, Robert, Glenn, Jeff and Jerry, and Marcia.  All of whom are doing well.  I married Jill Wallace in 1968, we later divorced but remained close friends,  We had one child, a champion, we named Erika.  She in turn married another champion, Steve Sherwood.  They, in the nature of things, gave us 2 grandchildren, Sarah and Jack Sherwood.  Truly, they both give me so much joy-words fail me.  I love them all deeply.  

I’ve had way too many careers/occupations to begin to enumerate.  Guess I was just too restless to stick with one thing. However, because of this wanderlust, I have had the opportunity to meet a vast array of tremendously interesting and wonderful folks, a number of which I can count as friends.  I see it as a privilege to call so many unique individuals I’ve met to be secure enough of their friendship to call them friends.  I can’t refer to names in fear that I would leave someone out.  They know who they are, that’s what’s important.  

Anyone that knows me understands my love of animals in general, and baseball, rodeo and skiing in particular:  three sports I did my best to excel in.  Unfortunately, I was not gifted in any of the three.  I like to think I performed as well as my abilities allowed.  

As far as religion goes, I have subscribed to the “Church of the Golden Rule” for a # of years and that has worked well for me.  

So, with more than enough said, in closing I must say-Very few regrets.  My life has just been one Grand Adventure!!

Love Ya All,
