Hi, first time reading this thread. When I have the time, I'll read the entire thread. Where in TN are you moving?? We're in the Memphis area (next door, NE).
I sure would love to meet people in our area to chat with and become friends with as we travel through our PC ordeal.
I too have lost 5 of my family members (was 8 of us including parents and only 3 of us boys left). My wife's parents (mother 50 and 18 months later, dad at age 57) to cancer. My wife is the oldest of 13 kids, 12 living and when her parents passed, we took the four younger ones ranging from the age of 8-16. At the time, our only child (daughter) was 4 years old. I've also been a caregiver (last year), so rewarding. Currently working part time at a funeral home.
