Finding Your Way Through the Storm
“Thank you seems so small for the true way I feel and for what I want to say. I am truly grateful to all at the Thurman Brisben Center for reaching out to help someone who truly could not help herself. My husband was my true north, the rock I anchored to and weathered the storms of my life. He and he alone helped me to hang on to what little bit of sanity I had in an eight-year period of losing both my parents, three brothers, and my son. He was my best friend, and I held him as he died. Now I seem to be a boat with no anchor. This shelter has pulled me through the toughest storm of my life. Maybe you didn’t realize it, but you are doing God’s work. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.” – Miss Sheila
