Friends, the work of returning to the homes and taking out sheetrock and furniture has begun. Although the stories are filled with sadness, the spirit is amazing. As one person said tonight: “We’re blessed.” The groups of men who are helping the seniors and others have helped so many already. Thanks to all the volunteers. You’re the best!
