“I downsized from a four bedroom home to a two bedroom apartment at the Heritage.  I had a lot of downsizing to do but I figured out exactly what I would need in my apartment and went from there.  I gave a lot of my ‘stuff’ to family and friends and donated the rest to the Salvation Army and a women’s shelter.  I finally called an auctioneer who came and took everything else.  It felt good to give away my things to those who needed it more than me. It really surprised me how much time I spent out in the community and so little in my apartment.”
