I am a person of few words--usually!!! I have had a very full life. I raised 14 children ( mine, his and ours) , with that many children you must stay young or else!! My husband died 8 years ago and I thought my children would fill the gap but they can't and I shouldn't expect them to. I miss the companionship of a good, loving man. I spent my whole life taking care of others, now I want a little, no, a lot of TLC. I am a very loving person and like a lot of cuddling and hugs and kisses. So the man who gets next to me must be the same. I'm financially secure so I don't need your money. I hate to shop and I hate expensive anything!!! I was born and raised in Arkansas on a very wonderful farm but we didn't have a lot of material things and I was happier there than I have been any where else. My dad just died two years ago after being married to my mom for almost 72 years, She is still alive and young at 94!!!
