43 years ago Peter and I moved into our house and decided to marry and have our family. Our house was a duplex at the time with 5 rooms on side and 4 on the other and a two car garage. The house sat on a corner lot and with hills and a barn off our back yard. It was very peaceful and quiet when we started out here. Soon we were married and pregnant with our first child, Jennifer. Wanting to be a stay at home mom I started a income daycare and two years later had our second child, Lindsey. With our growing family we tore down a wall upstairs and we now had 3 bedrooms for our growing family. 16 months later our son, Christopher was born At this point we decided it was time to make our house a one family home and actually added an addition and a deck to the house just in time 4 years later to welcome Allison who would complete our family of 6. Our fur babies , Cory, Ashley, Megan, Tatiana, Sammy, Kitty, Misty, Jacob, Tyler, Jake, Adam & Eve, Heidi and now Leah and Addie have all brought great Joy and memories to our life while living in this house. Numerous daycare, nieces, nephews, friends and children in need would come and join our family at times making our home larger and more complete. We invested in a pool when the kids were young which also supplied great memories for all. For 16 years I ran my home daycare to be home with my kids As my kids became adults and move on with their lives it was time for me to move on with mine. I proceeded to work outside of the home and continue to. The memories and love we shared I this home have given us a lifetime of memories and leaving this home is a very difficult decision but is very necessary at this point of our lives. 9 rooms has become too large for the two of us to take care of and needs to be available for a new couple to raise a family in and create their lifetime memories in. It turns out the new residents will be my son and his beautiful wife Gui Gui. I pray they will create beautiful memories like we did and raise their special family with the love and devotion we had. We are honored that they wish to follow in our shoes. This in itself has made this move bearable. The new house is 4 rooms on one floor and is so much easier physically on my body to maintain and get around. It will be perfect for Peter when I pass as it is less maintenance an easier to take care of. In addition it is closer to y daughter who has been an angel with helping me through this experience. Both Lindsey and Jen played a critical role in our packing and moving. They did the majority of packing. We could not have done this without them. We are so blessed that our family continues to remain wonderfully close. Not enough words to express out gratitude. Let this new chapter begin.
