I would specially like to thank Ronny Flynn who has been inspirational by contributing to all our issues.  Another special thank you goes to my daughter whose praise keeps me inspired.  Many others have sent stories and many have sent messages of support. Please keep these coming. Fifty Five Plus is a Forum for everyone.  Make your voice heard.
