To the editor:
What is wrong with us? When my mother was in her 90s, we respected her decision to stay in her home with her memories. She knew where everything was, and took care of her home very well. We knew that if she were forced to move she would become disoriented. The move would shorten her life and her quality of life.
In Lawrence, we ridicule an old woman for wanting to stay in her home. We cannot comprehend why she would not want to make lots of money by selling. The developer even made access to her home more difficult. Why didn’t the city protect her rights? Why didn’t the developer try to make her life better. Is everything always about the almighty dollar? I think Lawrence has lost its heart. The future for seniors in our fair city does not look good.
