Truly Inspirational!

These podcasts are special for so many reasons. It is so special for these people to be a part of something so unique. Their words of wisdom, their stories (both good and sad), are so moving. Thank you to Lloyd, Erin and their guests. I am looking forward to the next podcasts!

Great Stories

Loved listening to everyone, especially Erin , have missed your voice!
The mens stories were great and I especially thought how unselfish they were in not wanting to live with their children and turning their homes into a senior home!
I saw the other side with my grandparents moving in with us when I was young and it was not a good thing.
Thank you all for the Podcast and look forward to more episodes.
Just realized the guys are just down the road in Whitby!
