1968 We met in Hawaii for my R & R from the Vietnam War.

This website is dedicated to the Girl of My Dreams, my wife, Trula Flanagan. We are high school sweethearts who have been married over 57 years! And she's still a Hottie!

Not only is she my favorite wife, she is also mother of our two gifted daughters and grandmother to our six exceptional blood grandsons plus three outstanding surrogate grandsons!

1967 Trula became the first woman of color in Mary Kay Cosmetics, Inc

1970 Trula debuts (pictured above) as Mary Kay's first African American Independent Sales Director and goes on to become the company's first African American Senior Sales Director and first Woman of Color in the Company's National Top Ten Queen's Court of Recruiting in 1970.

A rewarding and lucrative life-changing career spanning five decades

Trula achieved her Mary Kay dream of working from a lovely home, maintaining a happy marriage and raising her two young daughters in a positive environment that would prepare them to live successful and prosperous lives.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
