To the Editor:

On April 25, 2014, as many know, a lot of people’s lives changed that evening. Tornado’s struck down in Beaufort County. My house was one of the houses that was ravaged by this storm. I was devastated, but not physically injured. Since then my friends, volunteers, and strangers helped me by giving food, money, precious time, prayers and hard work. This has touched me in ways that are indescribable and for this I want to say THANK YOU and that I am eternally grateful!! May God bless each and every one of you.
