    I’m doing fine. Helping my Mom who will be 89 in November. Took me a while to get this retirement thing down, lol. Enjoying life, walking with Max my little doggie. Trying to be a better person to others because God has cared for me so well. And life goes on...

    On the 21st it will be eight years since Kenny left us. Sometimes it seems like so long and other times it seems like it just happened. I lost my mother on October 9 it was suddenly and it was very hard. Somehow it brought back a lot of memories of Kenny passing away. My sisters and I are going out for supper on November 10 which would’ve been her 89th birthday to celebrate her life. It’s hard losing your mom but I thank God I had her as long as I did and for that I am very grateful. Hoping you all are doing well praying for you all. And life goes on
