To The Best Times:

I would say my happiest times were 1993 to 2008.

My husband (York Hamilton) retired in 1993 and we camped at Reelfoot for 15 years. We were both crazy about fishing.

We stayed in the state campground from the first of March ‘til they closed on the first of October each year.

He passed away in November 2008. We had a happy marriage of 61 years [and] raised two daughters.

Since then I’ve moved to a retirement place (Robinwood). I’m very happy here. Lots of friends – lots of activities.

I stay busy playing games & sewing.

I really enjoy the magazine each month.
