I've not had a lot of time to post on Facebook, but I just want to sincerely thank those who helped and are still helping our little Town of Columbia! There are way too many to count and I wouldn't want to leave anyone out, so I'll not even try to name you all.
You know who you are, and I want to thank every single one of you from the bottom of my heart! We were so fortunate to get our water and power back in such a short time....yes, it felt like forever, but it really is amazing considering the widespread devastation.
Alabama Power rocks! It took everyone working together, and THAT, we did. Okay, I DO have to name a few. Harri Anne Smith, Paul Lee, Doug Sinqfield, EMA DIRECTOR, CHRIS JUDAH; Tom Freeman and Jamie Thomas for securing and delivering the generator that got our water back on, and Jason Helms and Rick Roller for hooking it up and getting it started.
Vann N Shera Cooley, Randy Cooley, Ridge Cooley, Blake Lanton, Chris Granger, Gabe Miller, and so many more. See, I know I left some out, but we are so grateful for you All!
Please continue to pray for those who have suffered so much more than we have, including my childhood hometown, Blakely, Georgia.
I love you all! We are COLUMBIA STRONG!
