Gratitude From Alvin,Texas

A Letter From Terry & Angela Hooper

Pearland, Texas photo by Dean Digamon"Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to all the members and supporters of Friends & FamilyCommunity Connection. Team members showed up and spoke with my wife after Hurricane Harvey destroyed our home with flood water; we had 15 inches throughout the house. I was at work as she showed them around and spoke with them, explaining that I was previously a contractor and am currently retired military, I was very particular about how thing get completed and that I would probably not agree to have volunteers working on the house. After speaking with them for some time they gave her a business card and said to contact them if we hadn't heard anything from FEMA in a couple weeks. On Friday 13 Oct 2017, she contacted them back; I did the math for the quantity of materials as requested and we passed along that information. Tuesday morning 17 Oct 2017 we were contacted; informing us that they would be making the delivery that afternoon. We were amazed with all they had brought us. Words couldn't do it justice. There are 7 of us in the house, my wife Angela, 19 year old daughter Raven, 15 year old son Dakota, 2.5 year old grandson Jayden (Jayden is autistic), 7 month old granddaughter Nevaeh and 6 month old grandson Dennis. Currently we are all residing in a cabin in our drive way and this single selfless act has gone an extraordinary distance towards getting us back in our home. I did however have to lÄugh when my wife said she had never seen a stack of drywall that large in one place other than at the lumber yard. Thank you all so very much,it truly meant the world to us. God bless."
