Winnipeg woman, 98, packs up a lifetime of memories

I'd like to share with you an article I read from CBC News in Winnipeg. It's about Gail Carruthers, 98 years old, who is leaving her home to move to a long-term care facility. She's downsizing her possessions, just as thousands of other seniors do when they move.

I found this article interesting for two reasons. One is that it gives us a bit of insight as to how it feels to leave your family home and its memories after so many years.

The other reason is that it shows a creative way of dealing with household possessions. In Mrs. Carruthers' case, some of her articles are going to a local museum. While this isn't an option for everyone, I hope that one or two families out there will realize that their family treasures might also be treasures to the community. Perhaps not everything needs to be sold, thrown away, or stored in someone's attic.
