She’s with you the day you move in, and she stays with you all day—it’s like they’re holding your hand.” Burke thought this in itself was a helpful service, but the fact that the assistant came all the way from St. Louis to the couple’s Chicago-area home was beyond expectations. “She had a daughter who was looking at Loyola University, so she was able to come to our house while she was there.”
