Monroe, Friends and Family!

  • Even though I work hard, I still enjoy a sense of play!
  • My mother and grandmother have passed but my father and brothers are very eager to become a grandpa and uncles.

  • On nice days, my friends and I enjoy walking through the city together.  Sometimes we will stop for coffee or brunch at a cafe.
  • My extended family and I love to gather around the table to swap stories and delicious food.
  • I like to meet up with friends often and stay active and connected to my community.
