This person has left the following thank you note:

to the many people who have helped me. what can I say, how do you tell someone you have never met what they have done for you? Do you say thank you when that is not enought and will never be enought? I really did not think I had a chance to get any help, no one was there for me and then you wonderfull teriffic , people did what I thought could not be done you held out your hands to me and everything was all right. How can someone say thanks when a gift so large is given to someone so not worthy ? I do not think you people know how much you have helped me for the first time in a very long while I will look at others and perhaps one of them will be you I will be able to tell by the light in your smile and in your eyes because that light got there because you helped me. How can I say thanks for what you have done for me? Thank you with all my heart and may god bless and keep you I dont have room for any more and I can't type with tears in my eyes, but the smile you gave me will be a long time going away thank you all my love, hope and joy sincerely shirley

Broken Toilet Caused Big Water Bill

My Story:

My brother and I live together in the home my parents had. It's 56 years old and many things need to get fixed. We have been trying to get this done one thing at a time but I have to be careful on how I spend my money because I only get my social security disability and my brother has no money coming in. He got hurt at work and is trying to get help from DHS but nothing now.

I did not expect a water bill for that amount. I knew it was going up but holy cow not that much! I called the city and they came out said I had a silent leak in the toilet (a silent leak how come I didn't hear it?) and our city won't take payments so I heard about you and I hope you will help.

When we get back on our feet we will return the favor. I am the type to not ask for help but I have learned that sometimes you just have to. Thank you for listening to me and I hope you will help thank you.
