My parents moved down here in 1997. Then my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. My sister and her kids ended up following them a few months later. I couldn't bear to be away from my family (especially with mom dealing with breast cancer). So I dragged my husband down here kicking and screaming.

My mom passed in 2002. However, the rest of us are still down here 12 years later. We are raising our kids here. For me, home is where the heart is...
