They were blessed with fraternal twins, Terry and Theresa, They were the third children of six born to this union.

The children were comforted and cared for by their grandparents, C.L. and Ivey Andy in Wagoner, Oklahoma, later relocating with their father in Kansas City, MO. Theresa received her primary education in Wagoner Public schools continuing her secondary schooling at Faxion Middle School in Kansas City, Mo.
