Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. My parents. And Barack Obama.
Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?
A. Honesty. Positive rather than negative attitude. Genuine, not fake. I appreciate smiles and hugs.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Water. Deep water. I can't swim. Yet I love the beach. I like to LOOK at the water, not get in it!
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps.
