Q. My husband died two years ago and since then I've had one problem after another — my health, home repairs, car trouble and more. My daughter wants me to move so that I would live near her but I worry about missing my friends and activities.
You are faced with a very tough decision and it is one that only you can make. You need to weigh the pros and cons of each scenario — staying in your home or making a new home closer to your daughter.
You've lived in your home for nearly 50 years, so it holds a lifetime of memories. You have your neighbors, your friends, your church, your knitting group, the library where you read to the children, the Y where you exercise and socialize, as well as the doctors you have become accustomed to.
