It was tough to leave our first home, wonderful neighborhood and friends. This is new beginning for our future. I have attached a copy of the note I will leave in the Huntington Lane home for the new owners. It gives some instruction on the Jacuzzi, heater, and alarm. I hope they enjoy the property as much as we have over the last 8 years.”
