‘Nonprofits inspired me’ to give

The main reason I still want to live in Durango is the generous spirit from parents who work two to three jobs (same jobs I had in the 1980s to early 2000s), and donate $35 to a pool helping the less fortunate, such as Womenade, part of a program sponsored at our Women's Resource Center or other worthy nonprofits.

For the size of La Plata County, there is a phenomenal number of nonprofits that help the disabled to the hungry, and inspired me to recently make an appointment at age 70 to will, after my passing, my East Third Avenue home with rentals to house employees that work for blue-collar wages at places like Community Connections, in honor of my grandson with cerebral palsy.

My son, his wife and two grandboys are still my top priority and will not ever be forgotten in my will.

Like to live and give in my house without fear, and do the right thing when I'm gone.
