Favourite Classic Films (in no particular order)
Thrill of a Romance (1945), dir. Richard Thorpe

In my life I’ve done good things and I’ve done bad things. But I am only a little sorry now for the things I did. I am very sorry for the things I didn’t did.

I literally cried when they came up on the screen. 

Each of them taught me something that I use still today.

Eleanor: Taught me that things will not always be the way we want them, but we can always see the good things in life.

Deanna: Taught me that Life is filled with amazing things to learn and that music can cure the pain.

Esther: Taught me how to swim and not be afraid of the great unknown. 

Joan: Taught me to be Brave

Shirley: Taught me how to love and live.

Ladies, I miss you and I love you- ALWAYS.
