Hello and welcome to my profile page! I was introduced to SingSnap by a friend in 2007. It has been an exciting and fun experience for me. This site has allowed me to meet and make new friends and renew old friendships from other programs. Originally from Owensboro Kentucky and moved with my family to Ohio in my early teens...

We have so much!
Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other - love one another - support everyone.
We are all one and in this together!
