I enjoy playing the guitar and singing. I firmly believe one can never have too many guitars. My latest acquisition is a Roger McGuinn Martin HD7. I've been married for 48 years. My husband is an ultra-cyclist and we spend a lot of time traveling to his many cycling events. We also enjoy riding on his vintage Triumph Tiger Cub motorcycle. Attending folk and rock concerts is another of our favorite activities.
My profile changed on January 19, 2012, when my beloved John passed away in an accident in our own backyard just 12 days after we celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary. My life for the past 6 months has been a journey to pick up the pieces and put my life back together. A strong faith in God, the love of my son and his family, and the support of friends and neighbors have helped me in this journey. My love of music is also helping me on my way. John and I loved all sorts of music, especially folk music. We sat most afternoons and sang and played. Some of our favorite music was that of Roger McGuinn. His music is helping me through some very lonely days now. When I'm missing my beloved John so much, I can put on one of Roger's CDs and get out the guitar and strum and sing along, and it makes me feel John still close to me and that takes away some of the pain and loneliness. John and I did everything together and went everywhere together for 49 years. We were practically inseparable. Learning how to live without that relationship is a huge challenge. I'm getting better at it, but right now, I don't think I will ever reach a place where I will feel like a complete being without him.
