I'm a Funeral Services graduate embarking on a new career. I graduated high school in 1981, served honorably in the United States Navy from 1982-1986, been married since 1986, and have one son. I've relocated to a new state and have begun working in my chosen profession of Funeral Services, and I've never been happier.

I received an email from my mother today and she pointed out a couple of errors I had made in my original Meet My Grandparents post. I have since corrected the original posts, but for the benefit of family and friends, I will point them out. I had mentioned that my dad's dad was a steel worker; he was an iron worker. I thought he was killed on a TVA project (that's Tennessee Valley Authority, for people not from around here), but it was the Ford building in Nashville.
As for my mom's parents, I erroneously reported they were married 57 years. In fact, I was ten years off the mark. They were married 67 years.

67, or even 57, so many years! I'm sure it was very difficult to lose them both so close together.

Yes, it was a very difficult time for us all. But one thing I was grateful for, neither one of them had to leave their home and go into assisted living or a nursing home. They were able to stay together until the end (they both lived well into their 80s).

Thank you, that's very kind of you to say, but I'm just an average guy.
