When they were finally able to go back into their home they found it and most of the contents had been destroyed. Danielle describes what it is like to face not one, but two devastating losses. Danielle has passed along to many her knowledge of how to survive the storm and has done so with an encouraging "we're going to be ok" spirit. You'll both learn and be encouraged by Danielle.
