Twelve Oaks – Back Where It Belongs
My family is thrilled that Twelve Oaks is back where it belongs. Sadly it is a little bittersweet; my father Ed Henry was one of the residents who had to quickly move to Mountview. He had been a resident at Twelve Oaks since my mother’s death in 2002, and they both had volunteered at Twelve Oaks for many years through my mother’s membership in [National] Charity League. I remember visiting the residents when I was a Ticktocker many, many years ago.
My father passed away two months after moving to Mountview. We can’t necessarily blame the move, he was 91, but it certainly was a factor because the move was very difficult for him, and he never adjusted at Mountview. I told my brother my father was up there smiling down. I hope [National] Charity League can get it back to where it was, helping the elder in our area.
