Linda, this is DR Doug Gempel . My wife passed away on June 4th, 2018.
Our niece enjoys stirring up trouble where there is none. Her grandfather, my father in law, was giv en the name Walter Edward Cheaney, my wife told me what to put in the fields and I did not make anything up. The only correction I'm gonna make is his date of birth, I'm exactly 1 year off, it should be 1924. He did not like to be called Walter he preferred "Ed". My wife also gave that information to me. Her twin corrected the birth year. Marlene and I have gone out of our way to help this woman. We have given her cell phones and appliances over the years....we have done our best to love her but nothing ever seems to be enough. as for her comment about my doctorate...I have transcripts and a diploma if anyone needs them. I would not use the moniker if I did not earn it...my GPA was 3.95. and I earned ever point. I teach now at Mid American Christian University in Ok City, Ok online. I'm disappointed with this and may not come back...I want to thank you for fielding the question from this "family member".
