I think Thomas Veterinarian in Smiths Grove would be a great fit for ABC. I have took my animals to him since he opened. You could not ask for a nicer man or friendlier staff. A new space to care and tend to our fur-babies would be a plus for us customers. I think it would be a wounderful thing for ABC to check them out.

not trying to be mean but do you think that an 85 year old woman will really need that big kitchen?

I'm writing on behalf of a family of 5 disabled children & their mother. Three of her children are severely autistic and a 21 year old C.P. daughter is in a wheelchair. All children are non verbal and in diapers. The mother has
diabetes, resulting in blindness, severe neuropathy and TIAs. Family applied 5 years ago for a EMHE ago but are in severe need of help right now. If you could help them, the entire community would support you, I'm sure. They are renting a crowded mobile home and need your help.

My father became very sick and had a heartattack in July of 2008. Had to have bypass surgery in october of 2008. Feburary of 2009 crushed a nerve in his hip and had to have back surgery, so my mother went to work at a resthome. After thirteen year of not working but at the house it became very hard to pay the bills and fix up our home.My father has not been able to fix things. So my mother,me,snd my brother did the best we could to fix the things. The roof leaks,the floors are coming apart. My sister has breathing problems she takes breathing treatments to help her breath. I think there is mold growing in the walls of the house. My father's doctor released him to go back to work on November 22,2010.

I have a friend who's dad left her a house that now is in need of a make over. She just recently got married in Jan. both are disabled and her step son is living with his grandparents. They want him to move in with them but the house is unsafe. His dad has full custody of him but the house is in very bad shape. My friend is 47 years old and can't even straighten her back out. I saw her for the first time in over 30 years a few weeks ago. I was shocked to see how badly her back is and how bad her house is. Neither one of them are able to work and it just saddened me when I saw what they live in. Can you please find it in your heart to help them? They are good people looking for any help they can get. Thank you

The show is a bunch of baloney! It's a "reality" show made to grab ratings off of naive TV viewers. Don't even get me started on what some civil engineers, architects and building inspectors have said about the inferior quality of these hastily built homes that are presented as "palaces" on this stupid show. There's NO way a quality built home can be constructed or rebuilt in the timeframe for for some inane "reality" show. It's what you don't see on these homes that's the real kicker.

My son kohl was paralyzed at age 14 in a dirt bike accident. He was then sent 2 and a half hours away to a rehab. Are life was turned upside down. The next school year he went back to school. Never feeling sorry for his self or wanting sympathy he went on with his life. We always raised our kids to never ever quit at anything. He does everything for his self even drives with controls. He has stared his own business opening a gun shop. He is amazing and works so hard and has started building a home. He thought he had plenty of time but then found out he has a baby on the way. His baby boy will be here in about 3 weeks. We are beyond excited but I am sad to say his home is no were near done. I have been fighting cancer for 2 years so I'm not able to help him money wise unfortunately and am just now feeling better in the last 3 months. I would be so grateful if you could help him finish his home. His dad and I have divorced after being together 14 years so he lives with him. He is 23 and I have raised him since he was four. I love him so much can u help???
