Help after death in the family invaluable

It is hard to experience the death of a parent. It is hard to move the other parent into assisted living. It is hard for you and your siblings to divest and dispose of family belongings and possessions.

It is made easier by Assistance League of Everett and their Estate Sale members who take care of the whole process for you. These volunteers spent countless hours working to help us in this huge task, which was more than we could handle. Their care and respect in handling our family belongings was wonderful and we could not have asked for a better way to go through this part of family transition.

Many thanks to Assistance League of Everett and United Church of Christ Everett, which gave us a space for our sale. The proceeds will benefit many through Assistance League’s School Bell clothing program and the church’s outreach.

It is hard when you lose a parent and your family changes so. It is easier because of wonderful organizations we find in our community that help us in so many ways.

My family and I are very thankful.
