I am a retired social worker. My wife and I have been married forty-nine years and have three children and four granddaughters. I write to three men in prison through a pen pal program and am also a Eucharistic Minister to the home-bound. I am an amateur pianist and do piano recitals every two years at a local college. The most rewarding use of my talent was to provide music for a service held every year for families and friends who lost someone to homicide, suicide, or accidental death. It was by doing that I learned the meaning, and value, of "releasing an eye-drop of comfort into an ocean of grief."
