I am so blessed to know so many lovely folks through my daily mission as a realtor. I was introduced to a dear sweet woman of 95 years young several months ago. She was living in her home of 26 years, two husbands later whom passed away, she found herself unable to stay. While her mind was sound, her legs would just give out. And it was not safe to be there alone. So off she went to lovely Willows near Ohio Valley Hospital.
We met on weekly basis to list the home, work through offer and sale. Each time I visited I learned a lot about this dear soul. And her previous husbands and two outstanding sons, one local and one in Oregon. She had a treasure full of memories, life’s fortunes as well as misgivings, and unmistakable humor.
She collected salt & pepper shakers. When her family traveled they would always bring her back salt & pepper shakers from each and every exotic location. While the sons were clearing out the house I asked the owner if I could have the chicks for remembrance. What a gift! They sit perched behind my kitchen sink. I think of her daily.
I am blessed…I love my job…I love my clients (most of the time) and I love knowing that each day brings someone whom I can learn from and share while assisting them in buying and/or selling their home.
