6 course dinner

I have moved to his new house where my 93 year old neighbor has lived for over 20 years. She and her daughter have been so nice, they take care of my trash barrels and mail packages. But sadly they are moving out! I wanted to thank them for the brief period of having them as my nice neighbors and wish them well at their new house in Salem, Massachusetts.
