I have been a good friend for more than 20 years.
I grew up in an environment that had a great amount of compassion for the less fortunate.
It’s hard to explain how much that helps me in my job.
My husband and I were raised by a single mother and a single dad.
My father worked long hours and was a single parent.
My mother worked long shifts at McDonald’s and did her part to feed us and my two brothers and sisters.
My parents’ home was located in a small rural town in the heart of the Southwestern United States, about a three-hour drive from New Orleans.
My dad worked in a shoe store and my mother was a receptionist at a nursing home.
My mom and I had two dogs, a black Lab mix and a white Labrador.
We were both a little bit overweight, but we had a loving relationship with our dogs and were very protective of them.
In college, my mom and my dad went to New Orleans for the first time in years.
We drove out to the beach and saw the sights.
We went to a restaurant and got to talk to the chef.
The restaurant was a little crowded, but everyone was very friendly.
We took our first steps and were greeted by people.
After that, we spent a lot of time with the homeless and the people who had lost everything to Katrina.
The people who were homeless and struggling in the South were there and we were there.
We talked to people about what was happening in the country and how it was affecting them.
We got to know the families and the children of those who had died.
I can’t say enough about my father and my mom.
They were very good to me.
They loved me.
My grandfather, a former army officer, served as a captain in the Army.
He is one of my great-grandparents.
They lived in a trailer in the woods.
He and his wife, my grandmother, had three children.
My grandmother died in the first days of the flood.
My great-great-grandfather, who was also a captain, had a heart attack in the middle of the night while on duty in the U.S.
S the next morning.
He died a few weeks later.
They went to the hospital to see their father.
My sister and I went with them.
My grandpa passed away from cancer in 2009.
My uncle, a soldier who served in World War II, had pancreatic cancer in his 80s.
My aunt had lung cancer.
My family went through a lot together, and we are still here today.
My two brothers are in the military.
They are here as well.
We are doing great things together, but it is hard for us to speak about the times that we were in together.
They had a hard time adjusting to their new lives and the challenges that come with that.
We still live together and have many close friends.
My brother has been a Navy SEAL and a Green Beret.
He served as an intelligence analyst and now works as an associate with the private security firm Blackwater Worldwide.
My wife, an Army officer and mother of two, is a nurse practitioner at a private hospital in San Antonio.
She and her husband, a Marine Corps veteran, were deployed to Iraq in 2009 and 2010.
My brothers, who are both deployed to Afghanistan, live in Hawaii and are active-duty soldiers.
They work in a hospital and also provide health care for other veterans.
My daughter-in-law is a police officer and an attorney.
She is married to a Marine.
My sons and my daughter- in-law live with their father and live in the same house with us.
We have a wonderful life together.
My daughters-in -law have been through a hard period of time, and I am grateful for their support.
But the most important thing to me is my children.
They have been able to experience the joy of being a family, and now I have the privilege to give them the same opportunity.
My children are my life.
They will grow up to be successful, well-adjusted adults who love and respect people.
I want them to live their lives with respect, compassion, and love.
I am honored to serve the people of Louisiana as a member of the Louisiana Legislature.
I hope that I can serve as a voice for all Louisiana residents in my capacity as a representative of the people.
