My "Grandma Fern" was an inspiration to me. She went to college and at age 36 she received her teaching degree. Later she opened what would become a very successful Breads' & Cheese shop in Hershey, PA with my aunt. She fully retired in 1992 and at age 62 started a long distance biking career. She logged over 60,000 miles of riding during her senior years. It was during this time that I bought her an art book and encouraged her start painting, which she did and became very successful & talented.
