Quotes

"I weathered the storm trying to return from Spain just like I am now! We actually got in to RSW (Southwest Florida International Airport) the day before the island was opened to residents. I stayed with a friend in Naples the night we arrived and the drive in from Bonita Springs was chilling. I think i cried all the way from Lovers Key to Times Square. The devastation was unbelievable because, of course, the staging area for debris was there on Lovers Key. The piles were mountains of people's lives literally it was something I will never forget. Never."
