The Linggs knew when they moved into their villa in Providence Park on June 20 of 2013 that they wanted to experience Life Lived Forward. “Not our parents’ retirement,” they explained. Moving from the Washington, D.C. area where they lived for 30 years, they moved only one day after Miriam retired from her teaching position, and even then she says she wishes they had moved sooner. She remembers that first day in her new home in Providence Park – how she had to rush out and buy curtains and other new items – she remembers how grateful she and her tired husband felt when Willow Valley Team Members showed up expectantly to bring them lunch.
They knew they had achieved “not their parents’ retirement” at Willow Valley on that very first day when the couple took time from unpacking boxes to attend an outdoor 50’s music concert at Lakes. The band played “The Twist” and the Linggs were immediately on their feet to dance the night away. Mr. George said he’s looking forward to days filled with The Twist, the Beatles, with Elvis and more rock and roll dancing.
