Here’s a story.. about a stubborn old woman who refused to sell her home worth $120k for even a million dollars. She only wanted to die on the couch that her mother died on, in the home she bought for her in 1955. So, while the rest of the world built up around her, she remained steadfast and in her modest home, and her old blue car.

It’s a wonderful story I came across a few months ago, and now she’s passed away. But, she died exactly as she wanted. In her little home, on the same couch in the same way her mother passed away.
