How very touching. Crying yet writing this. Comin back end of July to volunteer in the old home town to do whatever I can. I will always be proud to have been raised in Iowa and have countless good memories of Cedar Rapids and her people.

my sister and her family lost almost everything but they still have thier lives and i am so thankful for that. the song reminds me that even though personal possessions may be lost, personal lives, faith and love will never leave.
