One thought on “Lee Wachtstetter Lives On Crystal Serenity”

  1. Dear Mrs. Lee Wachtstetter,
    I applaud you for “living the dream”. When my 91 year old Mom became ill after my Dad’s death, I took her to a casino resort with celebrity impersonators, slot machines and lots of upbeat, helpful people. I will never regret it and I say “You go, girl!”
    I am a 66 year old widow who hopes to Crystal Cruise. meanwhile, I hope you enjoy and celebrate Life as an inspiration to us all.
    If I had your email address, I would email you this but hope it reaches you.
    Janice Uible
