- I helped my first husband renovate the farmhouse I was born and raised in. We lived there raising our three children for fifteen years.
- I went on a mission trip with my church twice to volunteer at Grace Children’s Hospital in Port Au Prince, Haiti.
- I moved to Florida alone to start life over at age 52 because my Doctor said I needed to change jobs. He said being a cashier (standing in on position) for twenty years was part of the problem for my severe arthritis.
- After being single and lonesome for eight years I met my present husband. After eight wonderful years together I have become his caretaker because he is in the fifth year of Alzheimer’s disease.
