"I have lived in Dumas my whole life. I love the small town atmosphere and how people are there for each other. I am still friends with to this day the women I grew up with. My children are getting to grow up in the same town and go to the same church I went to as a little girl. I married my high school sweetheart. It doesn't get much better than that."
