Excerpt from Chapter 24 - Stand At The Cross Roads: Scott, with the help of Jim Smith, one of our biggest champions, organized a work detail to take apart the nursing home. For three weekends in a row during that hot summer, we salvaged lighting fixtures, wall switches, towel dispensers, tables, chairs, a stove and stainless steel table from the kitchen, wall hangings, and shelves. Nailed down or not, if it was salvageable, we grabbed it.
If I learned anything that summer, it was that Melissa Dunn is a bull dog. When she gets hold of something, she won’t let it go. God knew that Melissa was exactly the person we needed to kick us back into action and make us change gears.
