    Sorry for your mom's loss! Most of my losses came right after high school - 100s in my clubs died in Viet Nam, traffic accidents, cancer. Not enough left of the 625 for 20-year HS Reunion to occur. Made new friends fast, but at age 80? - don't know.

    Thanks, R Talloni! I've been looking for such a church for about four years now, so I will keep looking.

    Thanks for your insights, tomy101. That retirement center sounds like a pretty good place.

    Isolation's not chosen by Seniors bedridden in facilities & adult kids refused visits, or died (kids not abused, btw; seniors not addicts & "drunks"). In medical work, I've dealt w/ 1000s abandoned seniors in a 6-county area. New friends 70+
