KATHY TURNS 61!!!


Yes, 61! I felt embarrassed at first about being 61...that's OLD! But then I thought again...the alternative. After all, at 61, I can still walk 7 - 8 miles on a hot Saturday morning. At 61, I can still bike all over town--on a two-wheeler. At 61, I can still work as a facilitator lugging a heavy, full crate all over Fort Wayne. This past year I ran a 6.2 mile race in Hot Atlanta on the 4th of July. I introduced a national speaker at the Summer Institute. I traveled to NYC, Salt Lake City and Atlanta. I have had lunch with some of my best friends. I got to hold a new grandbaby. I celebrated being married to my best friend for 25 years. Yes, 61, and proud of it!

You should be proud that you are 61. You look absolutely fabulous and I do not think you have aged one little bit since you were my third grade teacher. Keep up the excellent work and congrats on 61 fantastic years. Nikki Oberlin
