I’ve been asked where I’m from. I don’t know how to answer that question. I was born in Coos Bay, Oregon, but by the time my mother died when I was nine, I’d lived in 22 states.

Eugene is now my home. This is a beautiful city with a small town feel. People take care of each other here. If I’m hungry I can get food, if thirsty there is always a water fountain nearby. The people here are willing to share “until the wheels fall off,” as a friend of mine always says. I am proud to call Eugene my home and you all my neighbors.

There is so much love in this town – if you ever need anything all you do is ask and it will happen. I’m still not sure where I’m from, but as far as home goes it’s here in Eugene.
