My son Chuck Currie has noted that while I announced my dog's graduation from Search and Rescue Training, I failed to mention Chuck received his degree from Eden Seminary this month. I will restrain my urge to tease Chuck about his need to compete with a dog and instead will let my friends and family know just how proud I am of his accomplishment. During the three years of school Chuck (1) got married; (2) became the father of twin girls; (3) struggled with severe arthritis; and (4) suffered significant complications from an adrenal gland tumor. In spite of major life changes and challenges, Chuck forged ahead and completed his degree. To say I am proud is an understatement!!! I can't acknowledge Chuck's accomplishments without thanking his wife Liz Smith-Currie for her support. Leaving her friends and career to move with Chuck to St. Louis was no small sacrifice.
