Sept. 19 marked the one-year anniversary of my niece getting hit on Illinois 159. At that very moment, everything fell apart for my family, and we would have been lost without our communities.
My family and myself would like to sincerely thank the people of the Belleville East, Wolf Branch, and Signal Hill communities. These communities went above and beyond for our family, and we just want to let them know that it was appreciated.
