I’m enjoying these retirement years with a wonderful second partner, Bill Barton Jr., after Al’s death in 2004. During the summer, we reside in my long time Home on Gull and Miller Lakes in Richland, MI to be involved with his three local families. The winter months we reside in Bill’s condo on St. Pete Beach, FL near my son, Tim and his wife Patricia, and their 2 young daughters. Our travels include my Atlanta, GA family and my Marquette, MI family as well as other favorite sights along the way. Life has been GOOD to me, both raising our family / having a career as a reading teacher/elementary teacher and as a single adult after Al’s death / now as a couple with Bill these past 5 years. My happiest moments are those spent with my 6 grandchildren, probably because these are never often enough! God has bestowed many blessings on me over my 72 years!!
