About Me I became a Peace Corps Volunteer at the age of 70. I served in South Africa for 27 months. I received the Franklin H. Williams Award for Outstanding community service in 2008. I volunteer at the library, reading to young children on Saturday mornings. They call us grandpals. I also tutor young children and I volunteer with St. Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care visiting nursing homes, relieving family members to go out and knitting or crocheting lap blankets or shawls for nursing homes. I also substitute teach grades k-5 in the elementary schools in West Orange.

Memorial Day with Ellen!

I know it has been several weeks since your mother appeared on your show after being absent for several months. I was so pleased to see her. The day she appeared I was thinking about her and planned to send you an email wishing her well and prayers for a speedy return. I was shocked and pleased to see her that day. Shocked because she had been on my mind for several weeks at that point.

My question to you today is when are you planning to bring your show to visit New York or New Jersey? I would love to attend your show one day. You and your show are on my bucket list and this year I will be 81 years old. I hope to attend one of these years. I enjoy your show, because there is laughter and fun and dancing. A question I would like answered is why do seniors have such a difficult time losing weight. I have been trying to lose weight for years and have only lost 20 pounds. Another thing on my bucket list is to loose 50 pounds this year. I hope I hear from you soon and that New York or New Jersey is on your show list this year.
