Despite her personal pain, she's learned the secret to what life is about -- making a positive difference in the world! She is truly blessed, as are the lives of those she touched.

Ah, refreshing! The news has been so dark and tense lately. It's good to know there's lots of folks willing to help out those in need - and a few to spear-head the effort. Blessings to Mrs. Howard and everyone's lives she's touched.

Every time you begin to feel like you can't do anything to make a difference in this world you hear a story like this and you begin to feel hopeful again! What a wonderful thing.

Thanks to the dispatch for printing a positive,upbeat story of one who chose to extend herself to help others. We need more of these stories rather than a bombardment of negative and or political rhetoric..This lady is an angel to many in the community.. We need more Angels.

Fantastic and congrats to all who helped Mrs. Howard.

If we had a gobment program this would have cost 30,000 for the 6,000 dollar products purchased for a grand and they might be delivered next year.

Great job and thank you for all those in need at this program
