Life brings many changes . . . I married Dave Schlabach in 1984. Two sons Nick born in 1985 and Adam 1987. Fast forward to 1995 and daughter Kylie came along. 1998 brought another daughter Kristen. Fast forward again to 2006. My brother-in-law Steve died from pneumonia. Dave died in an auto accident and then my dad passed away from cancer. Found a new career and 44 and still have kids at home. One day at a time . . .
