I feel bad for her. If she's a homeowner, did she get her money from the insurance company? I hope she's able to move into her home soon. Shame on the dishonest contractor.

This is one of those times I wish Mark Z or Larry Page/Sergei B would just write a check and deliver it with a boquet of flowers to ease this poor woman’s suffering.
