Tune-ups .0nsite Fleet Sen ce Cristi Lanclers Monroe County is known for being a little like "May- berry" Everyone knows everyone and sometimes this may seem to be the problem for most. In my personal opinion, this May- berry stereotype is what helped me and my family back in 2011. In April 2011, my house was destroyed by a tomado. My family and I lost everything. We didn't even know where to start at picking up the pieces of our lives and I literally mean "picking up" the pieces. The citizens of Monroe County and other counties came to our place and started work- ing diligently in helping us Charles B. Haygood, Jr. Pracn~ing Law, Since 1968 Larry P.

The vet took in our three dogs, checked them out, and boarded them for a week and did not charge us a penny. Food was deliv- ered to us. Money was giv- en to us. Hotel rooms were given to us. Most impor- tantly there were churches from all over the county there working and praying for us. There were several who searched for our miss- ing dog and several that searched for my missing wedding band. Fortunately, both were found by people who jus wanted to lend a hand and help. I am forever grateful and indebted to the residents of Monroe Count. I will never forget that unselfishness that was poured onto us as we were in shock and devas- tated. This is why Monroe County is So important to me and why I love this county. The county is like a big family. People may bicker and argue but when it comes down to it, the people of the county will always put aside their dif- ferences and help the fellow countians. This is my way to personally thank each and every one of you for your sacrifice d .uring that horrible time in my life. God was smiling from ear to ear that day as he seen the county come together for a neighbor. God works in mysterious way. That day he brought neighbors together and the commu- nity together.
