Alan has learned the importance of Choosing his Friends "WISELY"!
In today's Blog, I'll be continuing the tradition of blogging for each of my grandchildren's birthdays. Alan Richard, my "Oldest" grandchild , turns 16 today, June 7th, & he is my Michigan connection, & my next victim! I hope that after Ewe take a glimpse into his life, that Ewe will appreciate the awesome qualities that God is developing in his life as much as I do. He is an "oasis" of Creativity & Compassion, whom I know Ewe will come to enjoy!

Also, taking responsibility for his mistakes is something that Alan Richard does not shy away from, even though he is personally, somewhat shy. Producing quality work both in & out of school is the only option that will suffice Alan Richard's work ethic! This work ethic also appeared on the basketball court, where Alan's team enjoyed an undefeated regular season, & narrowly lost in the Final championship tournament game by 4 points 2 years ago!
