"When I told my children that I was up for the challenge, I saw their faces beaming with pride. The entire trip was punctuated with a thousand pleasures. I was the oldest of the 14 people in our group. The youngest was 20. I brought up the rear, but everyone took a turn walking along with me. It made my heart sing. It was a pilgrimage of life," says Colette Drouin, 78.
