Mary is a proud Texan (but what Texan isn’t?) and has been a full time mom, volunteering with the school, church, and in the community. She has been a Community Outreach Coordinator for their children’s school and worked with the homeless and homebound for many years. Lou and Mary have been married 25 years. Peter and Andrew are twins and love to play Minecraft and build everything in the universe with Lego’s.
