Yes! Attending Reunion

I've lived in AZ for the past 32+ years, since divorcing Red Graham in 1987. I remarried in 1992 to Ralph Fisel, and live in the foothills by the Superstition Mountains in AJ, AZ.
Retired out of the Apache Junction Library in 2007 & SO enjoy not having an alarm clock!
AZ is an amazing state with many places to see and things to do. There is always something new to learn.
I'm in pretty good health for (gulp) 77, and believe that "age is an attitude".
This year has been a year of loss:
First husband, Erwin (Red) Graham, passed on 2/16/2018.
Second husband, Ralph Fisel, passed on 9/3/2018.

Second husband, Ralph W. Fisel. passed on 9/3/2018.
Both are a sad loss, but are now @ peace. Life is good.
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.

I'm involved in the local college, taking various classes. I've gotten back into my art work, mostly oil painting, and am enjoying that.

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.
