Fines for misc. trivia regarding passing of GHW Bush.
Mike Bates introduced Kim Wagner, the director of family services at Westford Funeral Home.  She is member of national Speaker Bureau and practices as a motivational speaker. Her husband is a Lutheran pastor and they have 4 kids and 4 grandkids.  Kim’s talk was titled "Rethinking Life Interruptions”, dealing with cancer, chemotherapy, radiation, and how that experience actually opened her eyes to a new gratitude she now feels for life and even a thankfulness for the experience of going through that ordeal.
