It was so much fun
reading about so many of my classmates of '62. You all inspired me to write a
few words about my life.
I met Jim Hambly from
and we were married in 1965. We have 4 children….Patrick, Shane, Cyd and
Matthew and 5 grandchildren. Unfortunately Jim died in 2006 so he never knew our
2 great granddaughters. I will be meeting the newest member of our family next
weekend at our grandson's wedding. After the wedding our family will be taking a
vacation at the Outer Banks.
After 22 years of
working for Uncle Sam, I retired in 2011. I worked 5 years at Wright Patterson
until Jim retired in 1995. We moved back to RI and I continued my federal
service at the
until retirement. The last two years of working for the government were hectic
and crazy and the thought of closing out another fiscal year the end of
September was almost overwhelming. It finally dawned on me that I was ready for
retirement. I was out of there in less than a month. Last summer was wonderful
and this summer looks pretty terrific too. I love spending time with my
grandchildren, my kids, my dog and just not being stressed is truly wonderful.
The one thought I would
like to pass on to the younger generation is to be passionate about your faith.
I do worry about our nation and our world. I do hope God continues to be
generous and merciful. My children are good citizens and good parents and I feel
Jim and I have been blessed.
All of you have a
wonderful reunion. I would be there in a heartbeat BUT my grandson is getting
married and there is no way I would miss that.
