“I’m dead serious, Matt. I’m going to sell the house. It’s too big for me. All of you kids have moved out and have your own families. I’m going into a retirement home so it doesn’t make any sense for me to keep the house. I’ve gotten some very good offers for it.”
“Mother, you can’t sell our home.”
“Matt, I’ve made up my mind. Now, I’m going for a walk.”
After she was gone, he paced the room. He had to stop her from selling the house. His life depended on it.
