Reflecting on 2019

2019-2020 Jenn Wood (1)

It’s here… can you believe it is 2020?  Seriously, 1990 is now just as far in the past as 2050 is in the future.  Crazy.   And I can’t believe I have been away from BeHomeBeWell for so long.  I am thrilled to be able to dedicate some time to share here once again.

Reflecting on 2019 I am proud to say that as a Mom I made it through the college application process, FAFSA application process,  final dance recitals, senior prom, high school graduation, and then dropping my daughter off for her freshman year of college – all during one of the busiest and most successful years in real estate I have had.

A huge thank you to all of my amazing buyers and sellers.  I couldn’t have done it without you.

As my clients, you all had very different stories.  Different challenges.  Different motivations.   But, together we go it done, no matter the obstacle.  It was your willingness to collaborate and work towards a solution that lead to so many homes being sold, so many homes being bought, and so many homes being built.  What an honor to have had the opportunity to work with each one of you!

And congratulations on so many of your blessings over the past year!  Engagements, weddings,  babies, new homes, retirements, cancer remission, new jobs, new puppies, exciting home renovations, and even a much needed transplant for a very deserving gentleman.   Just amazing and know I have celebrated all of that with you.

Along with the celebrations there have also been struggles and sadness.  Many lost loved ones, dealt with incredible mental health and medical diagnoses,  had jobs eliminated,  suffered injuries, and faced sudden and unexpected financial difficulties.   Life has a way of challenging us that is for sure.    There were many moments I would cry quietly in my car thinking of all you were enduring … no doubt about it, life is hard.

Sharing your personal journeys and your real estate journeys has allowed me to continue to grow,  learn, and appreciate all of my amazing blessings. Thank you again for allowing me to earn your trust and be a part of making your last real estate move whether buying or selling.   I also wanted to let you know, that once again, as each of your deals closed this year, you made a difference in the lives of children living with serious illnesses and their families.  Jen, Avery, and Zoe Hole In the WallMy family tucked away $100 per closing to donate to an organization very near and dear to our hearts – The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.  They made all of the difference for us when our daughter  Zoe was diagnosed with brain cancer and they still continue to make a difference today for Avery, Pat, and me as we learn to live as a family of three now.  This year we donated $4000.  We could not be happier about making such a big contribution to such a worthy cause.

Heading into 2020, I wish you much happiness and health in the year to come…

If there is ever anything I can do for you or anyone you may know, please do not hesitate to reach out.

All of the best,
Jen

Celebrating Zoe McMorran

ZoeZoe DaZhi McMorran (16) passed away on March 19, 2017 just as the sun came out that afternoon.  Her final days were spent surrounded by love from family and close friends at her home in North Attleboro.

A sophomore at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School in Franklin Mass, Zoe explored the Early Education program as a freshman where her passion for children shined. She then joined the Culinary Arts where her creative side and food were a perfect match.  She truly enjoyed working with her classmates, teachers, and staff, and always looked forward to greeting the patrons at Gerry’s Place (Tri County’s own restaurant) with a smile on her face.

Zoe volunteered at Sacred Heart on Sunday’s assisting with the Children’s Liturgy of the Word program.   She also enjoyed her role at the World War1 Park and Zoo caring for the animals on the weekends and as a counselor in training for their summer camp.

Zoe lived life to the fullest embracing all that was offered.  Her positive attitude reminded others of the most important things in life like family, friends, and of course, food.  Her humor and smile easily turned tough situations into a good ones.   She loved her music and singing and she would never miss an opportunity to record a new track a The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp recording studio. She loved cooking and baking and couldn’t wait to try out recipes in her new Pioneer Woman cookbook.   A stroke left Zoe with some physical limitations but her determination, perseverance, and optimistic attitude allowed her to achieve greatness.  Zoe attended Loral Sims School of Dance Studio 1 and 2, where she enjoyed Lyrical, Ballet, and her most recent passion Musical Theatre.  And, Zoe loved her Tuesday evening art classes at M. Walker Studio where she got to explore and create in a variety of mediums alongside her sister Avery and some very special classmates.

From an early age, Zoe was ever the jokester.  All who met Zoe easily and immediately understood that she embraced every moment.  Her ability to connect with others was very special a simple “Good Morning” or “Hi” could change anyone’s day. Zoe’s self-confidence was admirable and an inspiration to others. Her smile was contagious, her laugh infectious, her sense of humor unique, and her ability to surreptitiously steal a person’s cellphone to take selfies or other random photographs was unparalleled.

Zoe sang, danced, and laughed her way through life.  Her simple approach to each day was a blessing and an opportunity to brighten other people’s lives.  Zoe’s passing reminds that her life is one to be celebrated.  Although we miss her presence terribly, she remains forever in our hearts.

Zoe leaves behind many wonderful teams of caregivers who provided the care, love, and support that enhanced and extended her life.   The teams at Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and VNA Care and Hospice were devoted to Zoe and making life about living for which we are forever grateful.

Zoe is survived by her loving parents, Pat and Jen McMorran; and sister Avery McMorran of North Attleboro Massachusetts; paternal grandparents Phillip and Monica McMorran of Ridgefield Connecticut; Maternal grandmother Judy Watt of Sodus Point New York; and countless adoring cousins, aunts, and uncles.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather David Watt; cousin Vivian Watt, and her beloved dog Baxter.

Calling hours were held on Friday March 24, 2017, from 4-8 pm at Sacred Heart Church, North Attleboro, Massachusetts.  A celebratory funeral mass was held Saturday March 25, 2017 at 11:00 am at the Sacred Heart Church, North Attleboro, Massachusetts. A collation followed the service.

Donations be made in Zoe’s memory to:
