I was really happy that my mom finally agreed to move here to Arizona. She had been living in New Hampshire for several years after my father passed away, when there was nothing really holding her there. She had so much here in Tuscon waiting for her, since this is where my brother and I both live along with our families. She told me to find her a cute little cottage type of house, and she instructed my brother to handle the things like checking into ADT for Tucson residents.
Neither my brother nor I had a security system, but it did not surprise us that our mother wanted one. My father left her well off with the life insurance policy he had for years, so we knew she would be able to afford both the cottage as well as the security system. She really liked the small home I found for her that is just a couple of miles from my brother and maybe eight miles from me. My brother then looked into getting an ADT security system set up for her, and he was really surprised at the prices. When he told me, I was too!
He did order the security system for Mom, but he went ahead and ordered an installation of one at his house as well as my own. The two of us and our families have lived here for nearly a dozen years and had never had any problems, but we also realized that that could change at any given time. My mom was really excited once she got settled in, and she teases us how she still has to help us years after being on our own. Since she is the reason we each have our own security systems, I’d say she is pretty accurate on that!
