The Gallery's one and only manager Sandy Smith was saying goodbye on her final day there before retiring. Tears fell like rain as the manager and her client-employees grasped the magnitude of the moment. It was the end of a mentor-employee relationship that began more than 11 years earlier for some at the Gallery.

Does a Reverse Mortgage Make Sense for You?

The recent economic challenges have affected many retired individuals' ability to pay for everyday living expenses as well as major unexpected expenses. Because many Americans have put such a high emphasis on home ownership, the majority of their wealth may be tied up in home equity, limiting their ability to access money to pay expenses. For many individuals in this circumstance, reverse mortgages are attractive because of their ability to provide access to home equity, while retaining the borrower's right to live in their home.

I thought I would share this to give more infomation about these beneficial but sometimes annoying worms.
