79 year old retired mental health therapist,went West at 21, with Bill Briggs:
Twins, Douglas & Cary in 1958.
Husband' Jake Breitenbach died in 1963 on Everest, therefore
took sanctuary in Episcopal Church for 9 years of study under Rev. Philip Hayes Zimmers & family.
Was generously supported by incredible financial gifts so that I could take a year @ Harvard in Counseling Psych coursework , graduated in June of '83 with a Master's degree.
Husband Joseph George Piccoli III married 1987.
Adopted Kirstin Gretchen Amythest Leticia Piccoli, who decided seven years later that she could find a better family, and with the Department of Family Services in Wyoming, proceeded to move through several other families and assisted living facilities to Evanston, WY. God bless her always.
 Joseph and I went to Tengbotche, Nepal so I could touch the grave where Jake is and say how much I love and miss him.  Once again we were given astounding financial gifts to make this journey possible, THANKS BE TO GOD.
Bragging rights
taking 10 mg of Lexapro, and fifteen other drugs to dull the RA pain, happier than I have ever been, retired from my practice last month (12/31/2015), Iove life a great deal and God even more.
