I have 15 year old twins; Catherine and Jack. Several of our classmates have twin grandchildren. Interesting. Congratulations on being married 50 years. I lost my husband when we were married ALMOST 43 years. He's been gone 8 and 1/2 years; nine in August. Good for you. God has surely blessed your wonderful life, and mine too. Next reunion is in April 2020. Would love to see you and your wife make it. Number 55!!!

Keep a positive outlook. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and after treatment I’m now in my 5th year of cancer free. I had 2 months of daily radiation with the last day a full 8 hours of radiation (17 radioactive needles robot controlled) stuck in me. About 24 months later diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic. I exist on daily insulin shots in my stomach for the rest of my life. Life has many twists and turns but hang in there!!
