She opened her doors so we could cook and donated a lot of what went into the gumbo, then allowed families to come in so the kids would have toys and TV. We wouldn't have been able to prepare hot food onsite without her. The little one is my daughter. She entertained kids, encouraged kids, and wrangled dogs.
