Tom plays guitars and sings and we have a "routine" worked up and have entertained at banquets, etc. We have played in tennis leagues and gone to State with our teams until the last 3 years but now are gone a lot as we are traveling doing the mission work. I play in several bridge clubs when I'm home. God has blessed me with a wonderful life and I am truly thankful. Update 04/23/09.

I love to garden, scrapbook and watch the grandchildren at their sports--soccer, baseball, softball and basketball. My husband, Don Cryer (OHS '58) and I downsized to a one story home where we love to have our family come to visit. In 1967 I graduated with a Master's degree in library science from East Texas State University (now Texas A&M University at Commerce). While Don was getting his Master's at Texas A&M College Station, I was a cataloguer at the A&M library. For ten years I have been librarian at my church and have been librarian at two other churches. In September 2008 our daughter Molly was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. She had chemo and radiation over 5 months. In March 2009, the doctors said she is cancer-free! We thank GOD for the medical knowledge to treat her illness. Many family and friends prayed for her and her family. She continued to home school three of her four children during therapy.
