  • "You made me feel very comfortable and explained to me how sometimes we get into situations beyond our control.  Our family, because of you, got financial assistance that we did not know even existed.  I hope to be back to work very soon and have everything functioning at a normal pace from here on in.  Without your help, my family would never have made it.  Words can’t express the difference you made in our lives."
