I am writing to thank you for what you have done for me. You have given me a life. I would not know where to begin to tell you what this means to me (my scooter). Without it, I do know that my life would be intolerable as I would be housebound again. I am now able to do a lot of things that I was unable to do before. Thanks to you I now can smile as life is better for me.
