My Parents, John and Marie Dean, are an inspiration to me and all those around them as they demonstrate how to lead meaningful, productive lives, regardless of age. My Mom recently earned a degree in Elementary Education and became a second grade teacher. A week ago, my Dad gave away most of his possessions and moved to Columbia to a be a full time missionary. While many people in their senior years settle into a comfortable retirement and wait for the Second Law of Thermodynamics to bring atrophy, my parents are tapping into selfless creative energy and a lifetime of learning experiences to explore, grow, change, and make a difference in the lives of others. Everyone who draws breath exists for a reason, and my hope is that readers will discover what interesting, sometimes difficult, but exciting possibilities await them!
