Destiny driven

Oak Park

The phrase “the gift of life” has little real meaning to most. For the majority of people, getting the opportunity to blossom and grow after birth isn’t a grand reward, it’s just what’s expected.

Renaissance opposes Lowe’s

I have lived at RenaissanceHome Owners Association for more than seven years. My reasons for moving to Westlake Village were very clear.
