This letter is long overdue:
I've lived at Forsyth Village for over two years, and I have watched the maintenance person as she goes about doing all the "dirty work" for this complex. Amazingly, she manages to do it all with a great attitude and no complaints. Sometimes the problems are challenging. Rather than resorting to a quick, band-aid fix, Lori looks for the root cause. Once she takes care of something, it doesn't fall apart again. This shows me how much she genuinely cares about us. We've had an unusually large amount of snow this year. Every night a new layer has fallen. If not for Lori's diligence in keeping our sidewalks and porches shoveled off, there would have been a dangerous build up of, not only snow, but also of ice underneath it. She works incredibly hard in sub-zero temperatures long before most of us "old-folks" are even awake to ensure our safety.
For me, though, I most appreciate how she pays attention to our every-day habits. If she notices something out of the ordinary, she unobtrusively inquires to make sure we are okay. Having no family to check up on me, I really appreciate that extra effort on Syringa's part. Again, I feel bad about not writing this sooner, but better late than never. Lori is a genuinely dedicated, hard worker, who genuinely cares about us. Having lived in other income based housing around Montana, I definitely know that we are fortunate here. She is a rare gem!

Making This a Home For All of Us
I have lived in Syringa Properteries for the last 15 years under one manager, Wilma Hatton. She is fair, firm, friendly and fantastic at what she does. It is a hard thing to try to satisfy 62 different personalities and I would never have a job that requires it. Wilma is fair to all and somehow maintains her sanity and sense of humor. Believe me, I am not the easiest person to get along with, but Wilma takes everything in stride and strives to make this a home for all of us! Good job, Wilma and Syringa, together, what a team!!!
Having this apartment saved my life
I want you to know that having this apartment saved my life. I found myself in a situation with nowhere to go. Syringa was instrumental in my recovery. Management has been wonderful and so are my neighbors here at Livingston Village.
