My Dad put his house in Escondido, California up for sale back in January. It finally sold. Duke and I just got back from two weeks down there helping him pack everything up and getting it shipped.
He sent some stuff to each of the kids and of course some stuff to his apartment in Reno. I think he is relieved to be out from under it. But I know he was sad to leave Escondido and the house he and my Mom lived in and where she died.
