Mother of six, Terry Boyle, and her oldest daughter Megan, live on Beach 119th in the Rockaways, in a house that belongs to Terry's great grandparents. During Sandy, the house was flooded up the first floor, their car was destroyed, and they lost electricity and heat, which still had not returned by Thanksgiving. "It really makes you appreciate everything. Last Christmas with our family was the best one we ever had," said Terry. They received $3,000 from FEMA to rebuild, which made a full recovery difficult. "It's been a really long haul. Especially for anybody who didn't have money." However, compared to the damage their neighbors saw- including houses that burned down and family members who died- the Boyles agree that they were very lucky. "The generosity of people really struck me," said Megan. "The whole community was looking out for each other."
