“I’m Joan, and I came to The Bristal at the end of February. This is almost two months that I’ve been here and I’m really enjoying the life. I lived in Long Beach, New York, the South Shore. And it was quite a change to leave the beach and my family, you know. I always loved the beach, but it’s fine. We’re enjoying it very much here, and I do have family here locally and grandchildren. And it’s been a pleasure… a tremendous variety of activities and a wonderful opportunity to make some very good friends."
