To the Editor:
We would like to thank all the volunteers who waded through the water in 90 degree temperatures in Valley View near St. Charles. They filled sand bags and carried them to barricade our houses.
These wonderful people came from St. John Neumann Catholic Church, HELPS ministry and the high school football team; they were friends, neighbors, Elena and Ish, and some who saw our plight on Facebook.
But especially our families that worked themselves until they were exhausted.
