What activities do you plan to keep doing Five (5) years from now:

Chanel was always ranked at the top of her class in Elementary and High School. She earned a Business Degree at the University of Kansas, and Chanel continued to work, raise a family, continued graduate school and earned a Masters degree at a very young age. In addition to consistent high academic achievement, Chanel brought a high skill set to the table. During a recent weekend in Cincinnati, we removed several pieces of Oak, hardwood from the center of a floor, refinished the floor with a sanding floor machine, and she applied several coats of polyurethane to complete the job. Always, ambitious, cheerful, well prepared and she always had a plan and a determination to get there. In our relationship, there was nothing that we could not discuss and did not discuss. At our family reunion in Orlando, she and I sat on the balcony until 4:00 AM discussing how to meet complex challenges that occur in your life, schedules and priorities, and how to get these things done without a major interruption in your own personal family life. In a recent discussion and research on her behalf, we were able to have a new furnace and air conditioning installed saving more than half of the original cost. We were in discussion on how to buy a used car for commuting the long distance from home to the university as she earned her Doctorate Degree. We always had discussions on ancient history and the cultures of our views on the African continent. We were always hoping that life would permit us to travel to Egypt together for the exposure to ancient religions and cultures. Chanel was a very caring person, did not sacrifice the time needed for others for her own personal pursuits. One of my greatest wishes was that we could have lived in the same cities to have more time for information sharing. Chanel never missed a family reunion, shared time with Gordan's family and she was a role model for Adelyn.
