We met in England while serving in the US Air Force. Bob was a lab tech and Twyla worked in the OB/GYN clinic. Bob brought her formalin and Twyla brought him cervical biopsies; a match made in heaven! We have two sons, Bobby and Josiah. Bobby died much too young (32) in 2017 and Josiah is an IT specialist who does work for individuals and organizations.
We have been married for 38 years and have spent much of that time living in Bangladesh and India. Twyla is an RN and works with mothers and newborns. Bob is president and chairman of Calcutta Mercy, an organization focused on feeding, educating, and medically assisting deserving individuals in Calcutta and North India. Most importantly, we enjoy doing life together, being with friends and helping make a difference.
Nowadays, Bob is busy completing his PhD in leadership studies, focused in the area of online social presence in higher education. Having lived 15 years in Bangladesh and 5 years in India, Southern Asia feels like home to us even though we currently live in Rogersville, Missouri. One of our favorite activities we enjoy is spending time with our Bengali friends who live nearby and doing life with them. If you have not heard the story of how Twyla and I met Tamzid in 2015, you’re missing a great story!
