"Mr. Spears, I want to say 'Thanks' from the bottom of my heart for all the work you did to save my life. Nothing but God! I told everyone the same. I'm so grateful. I needed it more but I hope if you hear of any program that will help me to get more work in the inside I will appreciate. Thanks so much! Mr. Roger told me to tell you "Hi and you're a good man" I'm sorry I'm so blessed from God. My house could have burned. Thanks. They finished and I signed the papers today!"
