Many of the families who grew up here in the 40s and 50s chose to remain. Likewise did their children and grandchildren. It is not unusual to walk in a local family doctor's office or cafe and see a large percentage of customers in their 60-80s.

There are a good many older people in the general population of my neighborhood and I have always felt a general respect and kindness in the way I observe them treated by others in the community. From store clerks being respectful & courteous in dealing with them to public displays of looking out for them by opening doors etc.
