    She's 81. Besides her husband dying a few weeks ago, she has been getting a little confused lately. She was stopped by one of her sons from packing to go 'to the lake' (cottage) a couple of months ago. They haven't had a cottage in over 20 years. Doesn't always recognize people she knew...

    I don't have a specific question...just looking for moral support and some semblance of comfort. After several years of scrambling post housing-crash, we are finally at the end of the trail. It's time to wave the white flag and dump the debt and big house with two mortgages. Comes at a bad...
