I moved to Richmond, Virginia in the Spring of 2000. I bought a house on Sommie Lane where I met my two best friends: Lynn Aydar and Katie. In 2002, Katie and I moved to Conifer, Colorado, to be near my two newest grandchildren, Laura and Kevin. It wasn’t long before the altitude of 10,000 feet took its toll, and I ended up moving back to Virginia. After living with Lynn for a year, the construction of my new house was complete, and I moved to Crossridge, a 55+ community. Lynn, Katie, and I enjoyed our daily morning walks together in Deep Run Park and life was good until 2012 when Lynn passed away from cancer.
