Susan and Bill Humberd didn’t want to wait until they had health issues or until they were in a crisis to move to a retirement community. That’s why the couple, who are in their early 70s, moved to Linden Ponds, an Erickson Living community in Hingham, Mass., in April.

Self-taught stained glass artist Joe Burk has created hundreds of beautiful pieces, including the three-dimensional pieces shown here.

In 1973, Joseph Burk was asked to help repair the stained glass windows at the Breath of God Lutheran Church (formerly St. Paul Lutheran Church) in Highlandtown, a neighborhood of Baltimore, Md. At the time, he didn’t know the first thing about stained glass. Now, 45 years later, the self-taught artist is a stained glass expert in his own right.

If you’re hoping to sell your house in the spring, what can you do now to prepare for your move? Riderwood Personal Moving Consultants Diane Thometz and Jennifer Hill say the colder months are the perfect time to begin downsizing projects—which will make your moving process much easier.

Riderwood residents and staff joined in a traditional New Orleans second line, following a local jazz ensemble. (From left) staff members Amanda Hixenbaugh, Sheena Lewis, Vikki Reyes-Spriggs, and Beverly Jackson.

Good times were rolling at Riderwood when about 225 residents and staff members gathered for the community’s annual Benevolent Care Fund gala, which raises money to assist community members who outlive their financial assets (all the details are in the Residence and Care Agreement).

Riderwood community member Kate Finan is retired from her career but continues to contribute both on and off campus as an active volunteer.

Kate Finan officially retired about six years ago. For more than 20 years, she worked as a daily money manager for older adults, helping them sort their mail, pay bills, balance their checkbooks, and manage Medicare or secondary insurance issues. She also made sure her clients had a will, power of attorney, and advance directives.
