    Wow! I am so impressed! And to think I'm in my 20s and wish I could retire sometimes! The place she works for should be recognizing her too.

    Please make sure she gets recognized. I would even write the White House!! They send congratulatory messages to people who have 50th wedding anniversaries and hallmark birthdays. What about your Congressman? Your state nurses' association, if any?

    Tell her from me that I am impressed and inspired.

    Guess this blows my desire to retire asap outta the water, huh? She NEVER wants to stop working as a nurse?? Remarkable.

    Do make the calls and emails necessary to recognize this rather unusual--and admirable--woman.

    This is awesome!! The local or regional paper, the local/regional news would be also where I would look. Centers for Elder Affairs and/or Councils on aging have awards as well.
    This is outstanding!!
    And I would most definetely send it into the "Ellen" show!!
