Because my parents lived at WW between and 1996 we had over 18 years to become very familiar with Wesley Willows. One of the things that impressed me when my parents lived here was the many, interesting people living here – kind, friendly people. Smart people who want to make their own decision on healthcare, who don’t want to burden their children or others with those decisions.
