Finally took a new picture. This was Sunday, 19 Aug 2007. Roy and Joyce at Lydia's in Kansas City. Relooked at this page in January 2015, Roy no longer has to wear glasses at all times, but otherwise we still pretty much look the same.


Roy and I are both retired. We live on 2 acres near Basehor, Kansas which is just west of Kansas City. We have two children. Jerri married Sean Barr and is currently divorced. Jerri taught pre-school in Wichita, Kansas, for several years, and now works with families in crisis. Jay married Cindy Smith. Jay and Cindy have a yours, mine and ours family: 4 boys and a girl. Jay is computer programmer and also does web pages. Roy and I are University of Kansas, Jayhawk Basketball fans. Joyce's grandmother, S. Evans Turrentine Stanley graduated from KU in 1926. Roy graduated in 1973. Joyce's brother, Stan Moore, graduated in 1976. Equal time for Kansas State University, Wildcat fans, Joyce's father, Edwin R. Moore and her brother, Allen Moore. Joyce attended KU but graduated from Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, WA 1976. Our daughter Jerri attended KU and graduated from Pittsburg State University. Jay has attended Pittsburg State and SW Missouri State, graduating from Pittsburg State in 2004 and several years later earned an MBA from PSU as well. Hobbies and interest: Roy likes to watch TV sports, especially KU basketball. He has cleared a space in the basement for his boyhood trains. The next step is to start on a layout. He also collects all sorts of car and truck models. As you can tell from the web pages, Joyce's interest is family history. Her second interest is bargain shopping. In 2004, her fantasy of horses became a reality. That fantasy has proven to be a burden. If you want to buy some cheap horses, let us know. We both enjoy our grandchildren. In 2013, our first great-grandson, Carson A. Hodges was born. I (Joyce) will try to periodically update pictures of the kids, grandkids and ourselves.

Jay's family. I finally replaced the picture from 2003 with one taken in July 2007 at Incredible Pizza in Springfield, Missouri. When we visit Roy's sister Pat and her husband Gary, we "have to go" to Incredible Pizza usually with their granddaughters.
Sorry, but I do not have a combined picture of the step-grandkids. They all have jobs and we don't see much of them.
