"It's rather large..." Rebecca said as she stared up at the large structure.
"I know, but isn't it great? I never win anything, but I won this in the office raffle."
The family helped Abel move out a few simweeks ago. It was bittersweet.
When they saw the house, Abel and Myra fell in love with all the details and the ornate fireplace covered in grime.
Because of its state of disrepair, the hood council had a $10,000 grant available.
Abel and Myra used the grant to help with the mortgage and with some of the cleanup work.
Abel also sold a lot of the found items to raise some extra money
and now at least the bedroom and main living area were somewhat cleaned up.
The house seemed a bit emptier, but there was more room for yoga,
Julio wanted to show Ana Rayne where her ancestors came from
They were so well rested after their trip that Julio and Rebecca brought a tour package for Abel and Myra's honeymoon gift.
