I'm a retiree, and a twenty-plus year survivor of cancer (Multiple Myeloma). I've come from some of the most humble beginnings anyone could experience. I now find myself old and blessed in ways for which I can only thank God! I now find myself at a point in life where I think I know what life is about, and wondering why I couldn't have figured this out years ago. God, family and friends are the real things of value.
