  1. We bought a home and moved in the fall of 2019 and it’s taken 4 years to settle in… I have since been retired and have a couple questions….

    1). Will you have another ‘Artwork for Display’ this 2024 year like you did in 2021?

    2.). Also, I don’t know who to direct this question
    so can you forward this question to the correct parties? Does Mosaic life care have a program for newly retirees to rock the babies in the NICU here in St. Joseph, Missouri?
