Jesse & Diana are living in  double-wide that sits on the site of our old house on the North side of the lake across from us.
Diana works at speech therapy for Hannibal Regional Hospital and Jesse has chosen to come back to the farm with his engineering degree. He is working for both Salt River Ag and for GSG, Inc. as needed. He manages to find time to coach Jr. Hi football, has done some substitute teaching at North Shelby High, and teaches a group of high schoolers in a Wednesday evening bible study and fellowship. They stay busy also.
