Sorrow in the Tri-Cities

By in Miscellaneous with 0 Comments

We lose people everyday.  It would be great if no one under 75 knew a contemporary who died, but unfortunately, they do.

Earlier this month, I wrote about Matthew Blacketter, a nine-year-old, hanging on despite cancerous tumors spreading through his body.

He passed from this world to the next on Monday, and now he doesn’t need to fight anymore.  He leaves behind a grieving family, and community, and about 27 kids who shared his fourth grade classroom for a few school days and a teacher who I’m sure never dreamed she’d have to lead her class through an experience of this kind.  Nine-year-olds shouldn’t have to learn how to mourn.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
