We are deeply rooted in Malden having grown up in the area and owning our home for over 40 years. Jim is a retired police captain and continues to work part-time in the municipal setting. Laraine is very involved in the care of grandchildren. Most of our travels are for the purposes of visiting family throughout the States. Laraine is a Master Gardener, and many of our trips involve visiting private or public botanic gardens. We hope to expand our travels to more of the West Coast.
