Retirement and Beyond For Avis Tenacity of the tiger, ferocious in your calling, constantly seeking a better way, how to live a fuller life; sometimes fierce in your cajoling, always kind for kindness sake.

Arms dealers, with their rabid wars, consigned to tilling common land; beachcombers on the long sea-strand picking over long lost treasure, that pure, ancient, human pleasure of reaching out a helping hand.
