This is exactly what Texas Cajuns are made of. This is a very hard working and talented woman. Strong and next year she will be back on her feet maybe not as good as it was but she will be back on her feet. This happens more than one thinks and some are still repairing from Rita and then there are those who will never get repaired because they expect the government to do it for them. Its people like Monique that will make it with just a little bit of help. May God place many blessings on you Monique! It's someone like you that has to show all those northern and California people what true Texas women are like. Stronger that most men. Yet compassionate.

My mother-in-law lost everything in Hurricane Ike and all Fema gave her for repairs was 4007.92 hows that going to rebuild her trailer when the trailer company came and took the trailer after they paid it off. She is 75 yrs old and now no home to live in or repair. Fema is a rip off to everyone they didn't help during Hurricanee Ike. Only 9% of people were helped by Fema,thats a disgrace.
