David and Marion Perry moving past effects of June flood

Produced by VICTORIA PIZARRO

By the looks of the Perry's dining room, you wouldn't believe that only six months ago this room was under water. New flooring and dry wall give the notion that it was just a home renovation, but you only have to look down the stairs to the basement to see the disastrous damages the legendary flood caused.

With the flood the Perrys lost over half their home, valuable and priceless keepsakes. Despite losing these things, the Perry family says they are moving forward and don't see this upcoming holiday season as an ending, but as a new beginning.
