a Humble Request for Help
My home has been neglected due to my medical issues. I've been out of the workforce since 2013 due to what seemed like endless knee surgeries. In total, 5 Total Knee Replacements and the amputation in 2.5 years! Still facing issues related to this. Even with insurance, between Cobra payments and out of pocket my bank account is nearly empty. I'm a widower so there is no other wage earner in the house. I currently rely on Disability for income. My roof is past needing replacement and there are 3 rooms that have ceiling leaks. The heat-pump is running much longer than past years and is beyond it's design life so I know I'm on borrowed time there. I would feel so much more secure if these issues could be addressed this spring. The repairs would lift a lot of worry off my mind. Help from neighbors and strangers has always surprised me with the amount of help and love for others. I only hope my prayers of thanks equal the generosity you could show me. May God bless you all.

Dear Family, friends and citizens of Rome. I've been in touch with a roofer who assures me he can do the job with the funds available. The front of the roof my not match color with the back but they'll be similar. It's been all possible by your love, concern and help that I receive this gift. Please know that I was moved and ever thankful by your generosity. This campaign will be closing soon but I wanted to leave it up a little longer so that this "Thank you" may be seen.
More help from friends and strangers alike assisting in meeting the challenge for some "big ticket" repairs that have been out of my reach for several years. I call on God to please bless them all.
I want to offer my sincerest heart felt thanks to my former co-workers at Edwards/Virginia Business Systems. I had to leave their employ in 2013 because of my knee problems. I was honestly surprised to see their tidal wave of donations. God bless them all.
