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. You've danced your way though working days without tiring, never stalling, to build a world where all are equal, where justice triumphs over greed. We sometimes feel, in that, we never will succeed, but each act links to every other, every sister, every brother, everyone that you have known who cared enough to struggle on. For us, we will continue, partners, lovers, friends, so many sparkling days and moon drenched nights lie stretching out before us, these hours transfixed with light. And for all of our remaining years we'll write a simple syllabus of love, a plan of dreams and aspiration, hand in hand, heart in heart.
