Letter: Thankful for my independence

This is a letter of gratitude to all who continually support me in achieving my goal of living independently in my lovely condo that I own and over 10 years ago and only pay $200 a month for in an association fee.

I was told renters are paying $1,200 a month for the same apartment. No wonder I’m grateful. My neighbors are so cooperative most of the time. Sincerity reigns. Even the bank manager at Alpine worries about me being blown over by increasing winds as I walk down the hill on Castle Valley Boulevard.

I am so very grateful to all who have given me rides, especially up the hill. Since in a few weeks I will attain the great age of 83 years young, (I say young because there is a local man who still skis at age 105), all I do is walk about two miles a day where it is flat.

Where but in America, the land of the free and the brave, could there be so much tolerance of an independent elderly woman living her dream daily. God Bless America, and happy Thanksgiving to all.
