Some friends & I were asked to help an older man a U. Navy veteran of WWII & Korea move on short notice. He had to be out of his home & into his new apartment in 2 days. He'd been taken advantage of by a person who had convinced him to get a legal (but, to me, unethical) reverse mortgage on his paid off house. He has the beginnings of dementia. His wife passed away several years ago. His family tried helping him financially to keep his home, but due to the virus, layoffs, etc. They couldn't keep up with payments. A wonderful group of military supporters in our town stepped in, & organized the move & clear out.
He is now in a safe & supported environment, & he is in good spirits. The item "Catholic Franklin Mint Sterling Silver APOSTLE SPOONS in Case withHistory Story" is in sale since Sunday, May 2, 2021. This item is in the category "Antiques\Silver\Sterling Silver (.
