The day before we were married, my husband asked me what I had never been able to do that I would like to do and I said, “I’d like to go to the circus.” I had never been to the circus and it always intrigued me. Since then I have been to a number of circuses, but at that time I haven’t been. He took me to Ringling Brothers in Madison Square Garden.

I thought that was the most glorious thing I had ever done, aside from getting married. I love going to circuses. I still like them. I’ve been to the Moscow Circus, I’ve been to the Paris Circus, I’ve been to circuses all over the world because I like to laugh and life is hard and if you don’t laugh, how are you going to make it through life?

My husband was very funny. He didn’t tell jokes he wasn’t like a gagster or anything like that, but he was a very funny man. That was one of the things I loved best about him, that he made me laugh. Laughing is the most important thing you can do in life, I think. Just so you can keep on going, just so you can keep a positive attitude.
