Introduction The 3 most important people in my life ~ my wonderful, vibrant, 90 yr old mother who (finally) lives nearby following a 3-year odyssey to sell her home, ~ SWEET Michael. We met more than 14 years ago through a local mentoring program when he was 12 and our lives were changed forever!! He's 26 years old and graduated with a degree in accounting and we are so proud to be such a big part of his life ~ DH Dan to whom I've been married for 23 years. A quick story. I met my best friend 25 years ago on a company bus trip to Yankee Stadium. Thankfully we were both rooting for the opposing team...our beloved boston red sox! The rest, as they say, is history... our hearts will be connected FOR-EVER!
