My mother lost her son. I lost a brother. My niece, everybody, lost a dear friend.
They took me to the house of a niece because I suffer from lung disease, my husband arrived and said: 'Love, we have lost everything.' I´ve cried all my tears already. My heart is so sore for everything that has happened to us, to our neighbors, in this tremendous tragedy.
This toy brought so much joy and happiness to my 8-year-old niece, and there are thousands and thousands of families just like Nick Caprio and I. I just had to do something.
I just need to know he's OK, if the house and the cars are destroyed they can be replaced, but my niece needs her dad -- and as much as I sometimes can't stand him, I would do anything to just know he's OK.
Whatever has to be done has to be done, plain and simple. My niece is a little child, she doesn't know better. My sister, she definitely should know better.
