This is a love story if there ever was one! They met in Bible study and married in 1971. They were both PhD’s. She in Chemical Engineering and he in Economics. Together they established and ran Pac-West LLC, an oil data collection journal for the Pacific Rim. Concurrently, they ran the family business of owning the Mark Twain Cave which was purchased by the family in 1923. The cave, purchased from Dr. Joseph Nash McDowell who had acquired it in the late 1840’s,  was made famous by author Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens), who created the Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.  It is considered a National treasure.  They loved Beagles and always had one.
