I'm sure she didn't Nancy. She was very stubborn and bullheaded and once she locked onto to an idea it was all but impossible to change her mind or see something from a different angle. I think I was one of the few people who could reach her once in a while. When she contemplated the place she chose to live, I researched the area for transportation and services that she might need if she were on her own and advised her that it was too isolated. RR compensated for all the things she could not do on her own even before she became incapacitated. Having been unexpectedly widowed myself, my advice came from that point of view of surviving. Before she started going downhill, I had counseled her to sit down with RR and go over all the financial and household information she would need to know since she was clueless. How much easier it would have been for her if she had before it got into the crisis situation it became. She was dead set against HOA's because of the restrictions but she would have potentially had more friends or people around than she did, more access to services in a heavier populated area. I hate to think what she would have done if her son and lady friend hadn't moved down when they did. The whole thing was so sad the way it ended.
