Learning to be Thankful…

Given everything that we've had going on in the Rohrscheib household this past year we've learned several valuable lessons. For me, I know that there's not a more helpless feeling in the world than when your wife calls you crying in pain and you are across the state going into a meeting.

Whatever Happened to Civilized Debate?

I'm old enough to remember watching President Reagan & President Carter on prime-time television debating over key issues. I can remember the Iranian Hostages and how we went to bed each night praying they would be returned to their families here in the US. It didn't matter which side of the aisle you were on, we shared a common interest. I can … [Read more...]

Update on Donna’s Transplant

As many of you are already aware via Facebook posts I shared this past week, we had a small hiccup in the road concerning Donna's kidney failure.
