"The tree of Life !"


TIME TO MOVE ON !  no matter how old, it's time for change !


My Husband and I built this house, and moved in in 1955..We were married 5 years and decided it was time to have a place of our own.. "The American dream"..to own your home..and move forward ..and start a family..


Starting a family didn't come easily..we tried for almost 10 years, But the wait was worth it. Our family finally ... Son Steve and his son Ryan (who is planning a wedding in 2018) My daughter Lisa, became a grandmother this year..her daughter Megan now a mom of my GREAT Grandson Parker..(turned 1 year in July, and is walking now)..Lisa's son Kenny turning 20 in November. LIFE MOVES ON..and the fruits are sweet. 


It's was a tough decision..but I decided it was time to sell the house and take the memories with me to a new location..to start new memories.  I'm a single active (mentally, a few hiccups with arthritis slow me down physically - only!) 86 year old now and look forward to the new challanges the move will bring. My one wish would be to have my wonderful neighbors still next door!!  I was blessed with the best neighbors a person could hope for..I will continue to stay in touch with them.

Also I have a commitment to the nearby Elks club..where I have been doing many of the printed menu's, special event posters,etc.  and proudly put the information and photos together for the VETERAN of the week..The Elks club on 5555 W. Good Hope, tries to honor a veteran every week by offering them a free meal for him/her and 3 guests..It's an honor to be a part of this and I will continue to work with my friends Jimbo and Amy no matter where I live.


You can imagine I had a lot to do after living here for 62 years...I picked up information at a Senior yearly event held at the Zoo..The company called Seques was there I received information and a  brochure from KAREN SHULL.the moving consultant, 414 -698-7420 .It was just what I needed..I had been fretting about how to get the 'downsizing' and clean out done..I highly recommend using this company..they were efficient and considerate of all my needs..and got the job done in one day! so I could list the home..it was ready to show to possible buyers. I listed my home with Tamara Towns-Pozorski, Benefit Realty..her number is 262-470-2300..She did a great job of working with me to sell the house..The photographer she brought in took wonderful photo's that encouraged the prospects to come. It was sold  within a week!



These two women and the companies they represent certainly made my life easier during what is a HUGE move and change ..if your considering a move,or know someone that is, you would be wise to call on them to do this work with and for you saving you money and stress..




"This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it ."

Stay Fresh..."Creativity A Fresh Approach to Aging". by Rollo May (Aging Gracefully) say's, "I think the later years ought to be the time when we enjoy the creativity that we have..


I say...Amen to that !!!

Hi Geri: Oh, my, how the years fly! I remember your 80th birthday party well. It seems as though it was just a couple of years ago. Rack up another 10!
