I think that it is wounderful when we all can recover from something so horrific, as I a flood victom myself. However what a insult to celebrate this coulpe. What made them special to DANI. Was it the fact that they have only dated for two years, what about no children together, oh how about they are buying on contact,(that means someone else gets this home if they default!), oh this is the best, how about the loving groom to be being in JAIL from Febuary untill Augest why his bride to be was left alone. In all fairness if you live in a flood zone you should have insurance, thus being the same pricipal as driving down the road without insurance. I do wish them well, however DANI should investigate futrther, and mabey some of this money could have been spent a little more wisly, operhaps on the VETS that lost the home, but not middle agded crimminals starting the lives over.

I wish WLFI would check on the people they feature in their stories before they post them. There are several other people that went though the flood and had to rebuild at their own expense. I am happy there are people out their willing to help. But some many was affected by the flood maybe you could tell the story of people who are responsible enough to live on a river and have flood insurance. And that even though they had insurance it didn't come close to covering the cost of rebuilding and how hard they had to work to make enough money to rebuild their homes. You should check out somebody else on Horseshoe bend and tell that story.

I live upstream from Ms. Warf and as well had to rebuild my home due to the floods. I had isurance( for what that turned out to be worth). I had to put a 80 foot privacy fence to block the previous eyesoe that she had bought on contract, and should have been torn down. I lost 6 months worth of work, and had to rebuild myself, I aquirered monthly rent payments on top of a morgage, thus will all take years to recover, Unlike myneibors how did not have insurance, fresh backruptys, bouncing checks left and right, marring a convicted felon, and can get DANI to build and give them a free and BIGGER home than the deckrepted chack that stood before, This makes me sick that the systm can be manipulated like this.
