YOU NEED A MEMBERSHIP SITE
Why, you may be asking.
There are the obvious reasons - to collect money and to create a community. Ah, but it goes much deeper than that.

AGING LIKE AUNT ROBERTA
We all want to age well. And, heaven knows, we hear about it enough everywhere we turn - TV, internet, radio, podcast, magazines, newspapers, even junk mail is full of ways to look and feel younger than our age. But I want to be like Aunt Roberta.
Aunt Roberta isn’t my aunt. In fact, I don’t even know her personally. But she’s been an inspiration to me for the past 7 years since I first met her niece.
Aunt Roberta is a city woman, having lived very near Boston her whole life. She never married and has no children, only nieces and nephews. She had a full career, retiring at the usual age, somewhere in her 60’s.
She had one sister, my friend’s mother, who she was devoted to, especially in their later years. The sister developed some health problems requiring many years of long term care.
Here’s where it gets pretty amazing. Aunt Roberta is a lady, a real old-fashioned lady. Every day she would dress in her refined lady clothes - skirt, stockings, heels, nice blouse, sweater, jewelry and hat. She would leave her city apartment and head out to the bus stop, changing busses more than once to visit her sister. Every. Single. Day. Without. Fail.
For more than 15 years.
That’s when she was in her 80’s and 90’s.
A year or so after her sister died, Aunt Roberta decided she might need a little more help around the house so she moved into a really nice assisted living apartment in the city. She still gets dressed every day in her lady clothes and is very active where she lives, often going out with her nieces or friends for lunch or, the best thing, ice cream.
Her skin is smooth, her eyes bright, her mind clear, her sense of humor intact.
Aunt Roberta just turned 102. Happy Birthday, Aunt Roberta, you’re amazing! I want to be just like you when I grow up.
