Have to go A BIT off-topic:

My beloved Paternal Grandmother was widowed at the height of the Great Depression (in 1937 at age 55 with very few material things, and a $00.00 inheritance). She never remarried.

She once said to me, "Always leave a situation better than you found it".

Grandma died in 1973 at age 91, still "money-broke" but well known for always having helped everyone around her whenever the need arose. She always gave, and very rarely took!

She enjoyed a wonderful life!

She was never rich, but she certainly was NEVER POOR!!
