Growing Older: Reader Essay by Charlotte Frerichs

From Minnesota Alumni Magazine Winter 2017

W2017_GrowingOlderCharlotteFrerichs_Inline300 Aging to me is a fascinating and sometimes surprising process. At 75, I never know what is going to sag next and what joint will start creaking. I am accepting of growing older but I do have moments of wondering what the future holds? I know for certain that I am grateful for each day. I am grateful for time to be with my children, grandchildren, and friends. I am grateful just to be alive! Gratitude keeps me young.

- Charlotte Frerichs (B.A. ’63), Chanhassen
