    • Theresa Jeanne Covarrubia says:

      I never realized how loved we are until this tragedy. This week we have gotten enough food that will last 6 months. Bonded deeply with friends we never knew we had. People from all over have written letters on our behalf so we can fight for the babies. People have donated money, time, and beautiful flowers. They bought gifts for the girls and even took them out to chucky cheese. Both our sons came. My daughter in Japan even reached out after a year of silence.
      Our daycare donated 2 days of free childcare and Staples donated the beautiful pamphlets for her funeral.
      Thank you. From the bottom of our heart, thank you???? we would be nothing without all of th amazing people who have touched our lives.
