Gale said the friends, two of whom were recently widowed, all moved in together this fall and are really enjoying the camaraderie of sharing a living space as their personal lives have changed.

“It’s really been fun,” said Nancy, who offered that the women move into her home.

“One of them likes to clean and one of them likes to cook and I’m in my glory. It works for all of us.”
