The liturgy and the music and the steadfastness of a denomination that been around for such a long time.  Secure foundation in religion is a comfort and brings peace. 

Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of Heavenly Rest – your job, your family, your hobbies.

I am semi-retired. I retired from the pharma industry after 30 years. I am now a real estate agent and investor. My wife, Angela, and I work together on these projects. I have two children, Allison and Parker, and one grandchild, Landrie.  I have served on the Vestry three separate times and now as Junior Warden. I have served as Senior Warden in the past. I've served as an usher for almost 30 years, a member of the sound team, an oblation bearer, and have been a lay eucharistic visitor in the past. My hobbies are my family.
