I want to say my coworker, two gentlemen, and myself removed the windshield from this couples' truck and I feel saved Mrs. Betty's life. I will not go into detail of the severity of the injuries they had sustained out of respect from them but I will say they touched our lives and changed them for the better. I do wish I meet you under better circumstances and wish you a healthy recovery!!! You two are one set of beautiful people!!! Desiree

Are these the same people who had that home invasion last year? If they live on 13 Marla Ave, they are. Hoping for a speedy recovery.
