Melissa is our eldest child. She is now 27 years old. She and Ricky were married in October, 1995. They live on our other 2 1/2 acres. It's so nice
to have them close by to us. They have blessed us with Paige, whose picture you can view, and Melissa is pregnant right now and is expecting our second grandchild
in December! Both Fred and I have our birthdays in December so we are hoping the birth will happen on one of our birthdays. They had a sonogram done. Our
next grandchild is going to be a boy! They have already picked out a name, Nathan Raymond. Nathan for Ricky's Grandfather, and Raymond for Melissa's Grandfather(my
father). As you can imagine we are very excited!!
UPDATE!!! Nathan Raymond was born on December 2, 1997 at 9:26 PM. He weighed 7 lbs 1.5 oz. Very healthy baby boy. Of course Paige is extremely jealous!
