Shortly after the devastating tornado that ripped through Oklahoma, our brothers made a choice to travel there to see what they could do to help.
They took cases of water there and distributed it to those in need.
They were, to say the least, totally taken back by what they saw. They are both retired firefighters and EMTs.
They told us of the people sitting in lawn chairs, in front of what should have been their homes, but now there was nothing.
They told us of the people who cried, just to think they traveled from Illinois just to help them.
This article is to acknowledge the pride and love we, their sisters, Sue Maynard, Deb Andrew, Vicki Benson and Linda Elmore, feel for our brothers from Walnut and Ohio. They are Everett “Lee” and Gary Sarver.
