Violet's Story

 “(When I started at RD) My circle of friends that 62, 63, 64 were thinking about retirement. They were thinking about slowing down. They were thinking about getting old and they were starting to have problems. I was starting to have problems with my sugar and exercise I don’t believe occurred to any of us.  Exercise has allowed me to not get that  old feeling  inside. Yesterday, Ed showed me the photograph that he took of me, and I looked at it, and it’s a nice photograph and it does looks like me but, in my mind, it looks like my mom. In my mind, I don’t look like that. I look like the person on my drivers license that's just about 30 years old. That’s how I feel.  I don’t feel like I have been aging. I get stronger all the time. I’m capable of doing more than I ever thought I could. I haven’t slowed down. I still do a lot of gardening. I can paint. I can climb up and down ladders. I’m still installing window treatments. I don’t know if I hadn’t come, if I would have been able to do that.”  Violet T. of Newburgh, NY
