Up to Now
The average age of the people currently residing at The Gardens is 87-years-old. That fact and the upcoming holiday got this writer to thinking about how when they were children, Christmas was about family and caring instead of money and grabbing. That, in turn, led to all the changes these people have witnessed during their lives.
