Testimonials

Last Thursday morning I woke with the feeling that 'I just want someone's hand to hold who knows about all this.' 2 hours later I bumped into another fire victim at the post office and he told me about the CARe meeting that night. How cool is that? Thanks so much for being "the hand". What an amazing gift you have created with your resource guide. I am still trying to absorb all you have included and what it must have taken to create it.
