It is not important for me to know why you will be
away, where you will be or what you will be doing. However, it would not
be what you have envisioned, if you are constantly concerned
about your home, property or animals.
My intention is to remove that
concern so you can either deal with, or enjoy, whatever the
circumstances you are about to embark on.
I will be only a phone call
away & of course, e-mail.
Once on-site, I rarely leave the premises
except to shop, attend church or an occasional outing. I make certain
there is no predictability as to my comings or goings.
I provide most
all I require for bed, bath, kitchen and day to day living. I am not
there to deplete your resources.
My main goal is for you & yours to
have a mindset free of any concern regarding your property & the
care of your animals while you are away.
Upon your return, once we've
bid our farewells & I'm gone, I want you & yours to look around
& be almost convinced that you'd never left & I was never there.
I carry a State Farm Insurance Policy to protect both of us. YOUR WORRIES STOP HERE!
