    I live 'a changed life' now in Chesapeake, Virginia. I was born in Kansas City, Missouri. Decades ago, I bought a one-way plane ticket to Denver where I wanted to live. I had $150 in my pocket and spent my first night in a downtown Hilton hotel. Young, and mostly hopeful to go with stupidity, with no transportation and no job, I made one phone call the following morning and got a job interview. It took me 3 hours of bus rides to get to the interview where I refused to take no for an answer. The next day I signed a 6-month lease on a studio apartment for $110.00 a month with nothing but the clothes on my back and a small suitcase. My hotel bill was $30.00 for 2 nights and my rent for a partial month left me about $25.00 and I had to take a 30-minute bus ride each way to my new job. It paid weekly, thank God. I spent 3 years in Denver loving every minute of it, until I decided I wanted to go to Alaska. I didn't have any way to get there so I asked the Navy to send me there. I got what I wanted, a free trip to the Aleutian Islands a whopping 1,200 miles away where you were lucky to see the sun once in a month. It was the best year of my life. When the Alaskan year was over, I asked the Navy to send me to Europe. They gave me orders to Japan. I wrote to my congressman to complain and made my case for why it was cheaper to send me to Europe instead. They sent me to another island, this time off the coast of Italy. From there Virginia became home. It took me 5 years to get here but I don't care if it takes 50 years, I'm not going to eat grits. I don't even know what a grit is, but I've been saying no for 47 years so far.

    I'm here now, to listen to you for as long as it takes. I am so sorry for your loss.
