“We went for lunch on a blind date. It took a lot of courage, and I was absolutely petrified. That day I drove down from RTE to lunch, I was shaking the whole morning in advance.

“But you have to take a chance, you have to be courageous,” she continued.

“I would always say to people as they get older to never lose the courage, the energy, that pushes you forward, even if it does terrify you and requires that extra push.”
