From The Villager - An Official Publication of the Village of Colonie; Winter 2007
By Mayor Frank A. Leak:
"...During this year, we have had a unique situation with a member of our Village community who suffered major disaster in her life. After a fire which totally destroyed her home, she has spent most of the year living in motels trying to maintain her job and coordinate the reconstruction of her home. Within the last few months, she suffered a major health issue. When I became aware of this situation, I contacted Sue Bredice [Parent Partner] at Families Together to seek advice regarding how to assist this person. Sue and her staff enthusiastically took over and provided emotional support and other assistance so that this resident received the necessary support to successfully complete her reconstruction project and recover from heart surgery. Once home, Sue will assist in some after care counseling to insure that things go smoothly in the new home. Without Sue and her staff, the outcome of this complicated and sad situation would not have been positive. Please join me in thanking Sue and her staff for the kindness and professional assistance in this matter."
