It is my dream build our area so children and grandchildren are able to live by - across town or just down the block. Family is so important to me. My grandparents were all to live in their own homes. My grandmother (who is 89) still lives iJ her own house. She is able to do this first of all, because she pretty feisty and independent, but also because all 5 of children live within 10 miles of Canby. Her children grandchildren can help out when needed allowing her to her independence. Susan and I feel lucky that my parents get to see daughter, Paige, almost daily because we live close by. What.! glorious time for both Paige and my parents. I want opportunity for everyone, to have a good job and live close family, if they choose.
