Goodbye Harvey….

A BIG thank you to all those that called, emailed, text and checked on me during Hurricane Harvey. It has taken quite some time to get life back in order and I truly appreciate everyone’s patience, words of encouragement and offers for assistance. While I do not care to ever have to live through another natural disaster like Harvey again, I can say that watching the communities pull together with stranger helping stranger, will have a long lasting impression on me.

A special thank you to Tim Allen and David Cory, who stepped in and returned calls and emails for me while I had my hands full setting up a shelter.

While I know DFPS is still reeling with the aftermath of Harvey, I can say that things at TCCWB have finally dried out and are mostly back to normal.

So again, thank you to everyone. And Goodbye Harvey… you will not be missed.
