My grandfather was a wonderful role model. A Pastor of a church, married for 60+ years, a devoted father,…I do hope that I can be half of the man that he was.

What is your favorite thing about Hiram?

The family atmosphere. The caring environment that words simply don’t do justice to, but that everyone “feels” when they decide to join our community.
