When a Homeowner Dies, Survivors Can be Left With a Huge Burden

When a Homeowner Dies, Survivors Can be Left With a Huge Burden

 

Dealing with the death of a parent, close friend or family member — and having to make funeral arrangements at the same time — can be both emotionally and physically draining. Now imagine also being asked to help settle the affairs of the deceased, especially when a house is involved!

Unfortunately, this highly stressful scenario is not uncommon, and it will likely happen to every one of us at some point during our lives. Not only are you faced with selling a house, but the entire contents of the house as well.

RealtyUSA Sponsors Puppy Tales Session at Dog Ears Bookstore

RealtyUSA Sponsors Puppy Tales Session at Dog Ears Bookstore

 

Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, located 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo, would like to thank Matt Whitehead and RealtyUSA for sponsoring the recent Puppy Tales session for children ages 2 to 4.

“RealtyUSA is a huge supporter of our Puppy Tales story time,” said Thomas McDonnell, director of Dog Ears Bookstore. “Through their generosity, the children received six weeks of story time that included reading three books and enjoying a snack and a craft each week. At the end of the session the kids were able to take a book home, as usual, but in this session RealtyUSA was also kind enough to give each child a surprise — a stuffed Pluto — to take home.
