It was a long and busy week for many people. The Reback Family was absolutely amazing and it was extremely inspiring to see all of the kids jumping in and helping. I got to see a community come together to honor this amazing Gold Star Family. If there was a need it was met almost instantly. If something needed to get done people came together to make it happen. We went over on the first day of the project to remove carpeting, take out toilets, remove wallpaper, and so much more. It was an intense labor of love and it came together beautifully. The back yard was absolutely amazing but needed some TLC and it definitely received it during this project. We moved a lot of plants, put some in the ground that hadn’t been out of a pot in years. There were also plants that had been in pots so long that they had rooted to the ground. While we were there we were engulfed in the beauty of a sanctuary that had been put on hold. Once it was cleaned up, replanted, and had mulch put down it was as if it got a new life.
