I was the first child born to my parents, Jimmy and Linda Rolett
. My sister, Christi, was born two years later. Three years
after that came Jason. Like most families, we fought like cats
and dogs, but we always loved each other, and still do.
My dad worked as a timbercutter, and my mom has
been in a number of professions: hairdresser,
teachers aid (at West Point Elem.), bank bookeeper, life skills instructor
to the mentally retarded. She is now a registered nurse.
In July of 1995, my father passed away. It was a very
tough time for me. I continue
to count myself blessed to have had a father
who loved me; many kids don't. I wish I could tell all those kids that even they have a Heavenly Father, and He loves them more than any earthly father ever could.
In December of 1996, my mom married Robbie
Roberson, a fine man who loves her
Christi and her husband, Brandon, live in Texas.
Christi is a pre-school teacher, and Brandon teaches art. The two of them
have also been missionaries to New Zealand in the summertime.
Jason and his wife Destiny live in Arkansas. Jason preaches the Gospel, and also works in
a plumbing supply store. Destiny is a full-time mother to their
Emily and Jimmy.
