Why did you choose our team to help you with your planning?

 I really don’t remember because we’ve been together for a long time.  I really don’t care how we got here but I thank God for the blessings your staff has poured out upon us as a whole family. You take the time to recognize our strengths and weaknesses working with each of us individually and a whole to set forth the best future for our family. Maddie is not seen as a burden but as a person who follows a different path to adult independence.
