18 years old!

Wow! Our premature, 1lb 14oz son has grown up. SO SO proud of this young man. He brings a smile to many faces.

Michelle remembers being left with my brother overnight whilst Richard and I went to one of their concerts. She was disgusted. I don’t remember! Anyways, Petra did their farewell tour in 2005 before disbanding in early 2006. We took Michelle, Michael and Daniel to see them in Helena, MT. It was... read more
