    Any suggestions would be welcome. When you have lost a loved one life in the single lane can be very lonely .

      Hi Irene. I too am alone, and disabled. Would love to travel with a companion. I live in Acton, Calif. Close to Palmdale. It would be nice if there is a website dedicated to singles or seniors who want to meet.

    A lot of seniors, like myself, are alone and would like to find a partner to travel with on cruises. If anyone were interested we could get a group together - have lunch and discuss this. Also arrange to go out for small trips (carpooling maybe),

    I wish I would be able to volunteer after I retire. Thanks for a nice video!
