December, 2016 Milford, CT - "I am so very thankful and very grateful for everything you have done for me. Now that the winter is coming again I am remembering all the cold nights I had to stay in my truck. I have to say I am lucky to have met you guys and have your support and help me stay up on my feet and not letting me fall even when I wanted to. When I didn't have the strength you gave it to me without even blinking or me having to ask twice. I am so very grateful and again thank you so much for everything! I can't even stress or express how grateful and thankful I am. "
