History, herstory.... we all have a story I am so grateful to God and thankful to my parents that I want to document our humble beginnings. Circumstances and opportunity provided the perfect time to make it happen Nothing unusual here to share. However, as an intended legacy piece of work, I do want to encourage those of us of the "original crew" and enlighten future crew members. Simone is a God- fearing woman. She had a fulfilling career as an educator and has often been referred to simply as Erica's mom. She is very grateful for these last five years in which she's been enjoying her new found freedom that comes along with retirement as she navigates her second act. She resides in a suburb of Houston, Texas with her husband, John.
