Comments:

AZ is an amazing state with many places to see and things to do. There is always something new to learn. After almost 33 years I still love it.
I'm in pretty good health for (gulp) 77, and believe that "age is an attitude".
Recent times have been one of loss:
First husband, Erwin (Red) Graham, passed on 2/16/2018.
Second husband, Ralph W. Fisel. passed on 9/3/2018.
On 4/7/19 Buddy, golden retriever, joined Ralph.
There is a peace when you can do longer live but exist. Circle of life.
I've managed a 3 week vacation in IL/WI & a 10 day w/sister, Linda in AR.
Between Ralph (second marriage) & I, there are 6 children, 13 grand children, & 16 great grand children!! Have first bio grandchild, Zoey Emmalei, & now 2nd Kenneth CronceIII by granddaughter Christina. Life goes on.

School Story:

After high school graduation, I went to the "school of life". There are no college degrees, but various and sundry classes were taken to keep learning.

Places Traveled:

I'm still working on the U.S.A. as there is so much in this country. I have traveled to Copper Canyon, MX; & whale watching in Baja, MX; new England states in the Fall of 2009; and rafting down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
The 1st 5 days of Dec.2010 Ralph & I went to DisneyWorld for the 1st time ever! It was so intense,and a once in a lifetime trip. We're only doing it once in a lifetime!!
We spent time in the WI/IL in Aug.2012 catching up w/family & friends.
Sept. found us experiencing OR for the first time! It's a wonderful state w/much history, scenery, friends & fun.
Now, 2019, that there is no one but me to consider, I plan to initially travel to the
midwest for "catch-up" then who knows??
In the fall of 2015 a life long girlfriend & I, did an America by Rail 13 day trip thru the upper USA, then back thru Canada!!
Hope for MANY more experiences in our great USA!!

Any Words Of Wisdom:

We never touch people so lightly that we don't leave a trace.

If you want to make God laugh, tell him/her your plans!

Blessed are the flexible, for they won't be bent out of shape!!

Already, again, didn't this "just" happen recently? "Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes!" Sure we quite a few "turns" left, but regardless - Happiest of Birthdays!! Locker Partner, Gail

I remember Lisa from the "old neighborhood," as a  nice pretty blonde childhood friend. 

Sad to hear she is gone.  Blessings to her family.
