I am a life-long resident of the Grand Rapids area, but have traveled with my husband to many parts of the world. I love sampling the local cuisine! I was a legal secretary for 20 years and have been retired for 3 years. I have two adult sons, one of whom is a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer in Florida and one who has become a Hoosier. My family at home these days include my husband of 41 years and our two year old standard Poodle "Ozzie" who is the joy of our lives right now, excluding, of course, my two boys.
