Finding The Joy
No one is ever ready for the death of a loved one, but for Patty Higham, losing her mother unexpectedly when she was 9 years old was especially devastating. Caught unprepared by the tragic accident, the family’s pain was compounded by a messy funeral process that delayed the service for a week.
Preplanning For Your Family and For Yourself
When it comes to life after retirement, Joe and Dena Nelson are living the American Dream. The former college sweethearts have been going strong, having fun together for 50 years and don’t have any intentions of slowing down.
A Final Gift From Grandpa
Kathy Grahn considers herself to be pretty lucky. While many people might only see their grandparents on holidays or the occasional weekend, she was able to visit hers almost every day growing up in small-town Stayton, Ore. As a matter of fact, her grandparents, Harold and Grace, lived just down the street and were a part of her daily life. She forged a special relationship with them that’s never diminished.
Positivity and Preplanning
Doris Denhem has been through some tough times lately, but it’s only inspired her to live her life with more energy and optimism. In a span of three months she learned that her longtime friend had terminal lung cancer and then watched her ex-husband die of the same disease. Dealing with those events back-to-back would be unbearable for many people, but Dori’s positive attitude has allowed her to persevere and thrive through it all.
