    TESTIMONAL
  • I used to mow lawns for seniors when I was growing up and loved visiting with them before and after and loved hearing their life stories and loved telling them mine lol at the time I was only about 12 or 13 but I did this for about four years and had a great time and felt wonderful inside. I cant wait to spend some of my free time with some seniors again who desperately may just want a visitor to talk with, That's me!I also would like to help with odds and ends if they need it as well.

    Dennis Belanger
    would love to get back to visiting
