On a personal note, I'm a widower and was married to my charming and exceptional wife, Charlene, for 58 years. It was my only marriage and I was truly blessed. I continue to be blessed by my only daughter, Dawn. We live together in one of those hi-tech designer homes in North Las Vegas.

Before then, Charlene and I lived in a truly unique home on a three-quarter acre lot in Livonia MI.
Before we bought it, it looked like something the ghostly Addams family would live in, but it had three masonry fireplaces and my wife fell in love with it. I was reluctant to buy it, but my wife made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said if we bought a different house, I'd have to do my own cooking laundry and cleaning.

So, we bought it and did most of the work renovating it ourselves. I was amazed to find I had some cabinet making talents as well as a keen eye for design.

Stan HomeIt was a great place to raise our kid. Things went along very well until she became a teenager and we became the worst parents that the world has ever produced. But at the age of 21, Dawn apologized profusely and has been the best daughter anyone could ask for. I love her generous spirit.
