Submitted October 17, 2016: Enjoying retirement after a fulfilling career in financial services. John and I are fortunate to have two granddaughters ( ages 7 and 5) living nearby so we spend as much time as possible with them. Our 15 month old grandson is in Nevada so we see him less frequently but make good use of FaceTime to stay connected. We have been doing lots of traveling in the last few years and plan to continue our travel adventures as long as we have the stamina to enjoy it.
