Moving Closer to Family

It’s not unusual anymore for families that grew up in the same house to find themselves separated by many miles as they grow older. When downsizing, medical issues or just a desire to be closer to family combine forces, moving to a new city — or even a new state paves the way to new possibilities.


Some changes are planned. Others are unexpected. And sometimes they’re both. But regardless of the outcome, it’s good to have family and friends nearby.
