A remarkable senior faces aging, blindness, loss of independence, and even death with courage and faith, but especially with humor.Its goal: to gently remind readers of all ages of the problems and challenges seniors face. It stresses independence, wisdom, and faith as vital qualities for successful living during the senior years. Other stories in the book deal with friendship, family, and the sheer adventure of living. Ray Wiseman lives and writes in Fergus Ontario, Canada. Unhappy with the negative writing characteristic of so many publications aimed at seniors, he began writing positivemonthly columns for the Guelph Mercury dealing with seniors issues. It proved so popular, the Mercury asked him to write a weekly column aimed at the general public. The Aunt Harristories first appeared in the seniors columns; most of the other stories in the book came from his weekly column. He bases his knowledge of seniors' issues on various factors: he recently became a card-carrying senior; he has a mother-in-law in a seniors' home; and his relatives tend tolive to 100. Earlier in life he spent two years in pastoral ministry, and five in missionary service. For the past 15 years he has volunteered with Partners International..
