Bio: I grew up in Connecticut, and became an LPN. At 20 years of age, I married my sweetheart, Alan. We had two children, our daughter, Julie, and our son, Gregory. In 2011, we retired and moved to Florida. In 2012, 5 months after our move here, my husband died after saving a young child from a riptide. We were happily married for 42 years. I remained in Florida for several reasons. The first reason was because my daughter lives in Lutz, Fl, with her husband, Dale. My son and his wife, Sarah, remain in Connecticut. The second reason is the weather. The third, very big reason to remain here, is because of HTLC. They have made me feel so welcome, and my new group of friends are largely based on the friendships I have made in this church. It is a wonderful place to worship and receive the word of the Lord!
