Recently, Retirement Yenta learned of the passing of a former colleague. He was 61 and not yet retired. He could have already retired, but he was afraid he would have nothing to do. This put your dear Yenta to thinking about all the things that she has in her life that she enjoys, and all the things she is looking forward to in her future. Retirement Yenta wants to remind everyone that life is short, take time to enjoy it. AND, if you are able, retire so you can start enjoying your golden years now.
