JONEL: My name is Jonel Davis, I’m 82, I’ve been here for 8 years.
I used to live in Chicago with my son after my husband died and I decided I was ready to move back down here because I have this other daughter down here in Southern Indiana. My sister-in-law told me about it and she had never been in here, but somebody that lived here told her how nice it was she said, “Lets go look.” Well as soon as I saw it, I loved it.
The biggest thing for me is that I’m safe. Feel like I don’t have to worry at all. I love my view. I love my apartment size…it’s small, but I use every inch of it which is really nice for me. I love Sydney — that’s our manager. She really takes good care of us. And the maintenance crew, any time you have a problem all you do is call and they’re right there.
It’s just nice. I can’t tell you — I want to die here. I know that sounds mormon but I do. I don’t ever want to leave my apartment and my kids keep saying, “Oh, you want to come here?” No, I want to stay right where I am. I’m used to my own ways and time schedule and everything. I’m just here to stay.
