“Every time it came into my heart, it broke. I’m in the process of doing it myself, even if I have to learn, but I’ll be on this roof myself if I have to, ”said Officer Cynthia Padua.

“She helped me and both, another guy, and I appreciate that,” Halite said.

“Through no fault of her own, she suffers every time it rains and it drips. Come out and just take care of it for her, ”Clarence E. Smith said.
