WHO IS THE ONE PERSON WHO HAS HAD THE GREATEST IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE AND WHY: My father because he taught me that no matter what life hands you, you are able to make something of yourself. He battled alcoholism but quit and remained sober over 30 years. He rebuilt his relationships and family earning respect and became the to-go-to person by the whole family. He started a new career at age 44 in a time when company loyalty was the common way of life. Though he didn’t have a college degree in his field, he helped people become part of the community. Through teaching them the skills needed to earn a living, individuals initially institutionalized were able to meld into society. My father’s old school ways and life lessons lend to my respect for the past, love of family, and belief for tomorrow.

IF YOU HAD A TIME MACHINE AND COULD USE IT ONLY ONCE, WOULD YOU VISIT THE FUTURE OR THE PAST AND WHY: Past because I believe there was more respect for life then.
IF A MOVIE WAS MADE OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT ACTRESS WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY YOU? WOULD THE MOVIE BE AN ACTION FILM, COMEDY, DRAMA, HORROR, ROMANCE, OR SCI-FI: Lucille Ball in a romantic comedy.
