This person has left the following thank you note:

to simply say Thank You for all that Modest needs doners do for the applicants for assistance is such a small jesture. I am so very grateful to all that you have done for me that I cannot begin to express myself and I am glad this is in writing and not face to face because my eyes are so swollen from crying that it would not be a pretty picture. Thank You doners and may you be forever blessed by your kindness. I shall forever be thankful to all of you.

Blood on My Carpet/Help Me Move On

My Story:

I was shot inside my home in January 2009 and my daughter was killed instantly. There was substantial blood loss and the carpeting in the living room and the hallway of my home cannot be cleaned and needs to be removed and replaced.

I have had several surgeries since the attack and the doctors have stated that I will need more; I have sustained critical injuries to my jaw and face. I am currently living with my sister because I cannot bear to look at the carpeting or to be in the home as it is right now with the bullet holes in the wall and front door.

I am seeing a therapist and with time, am sure that I will be able to cope with the pain and emptiness of losing a child. I want to move on with my life and return to my home but as it is right now I cannot cope with the memories of that terrible morning. I am asking you to help me repair these damages. Thank you for consideration of this request.
