With her two replaced knees and her husband’s unsteadiness following a stroke and their old ramp more useful as a one-way theme park ride, our clients needed a safe way to their car. So we ripped out the old and installed the new, a properly sloping 68-foot beast.

As always good work by volunteers from the Texas Project Ramp project, who give up their Saturday mornings to make the world a little bit better place: Paul Sughroue, Kay Lovelace, Sam Lomeli, Kim Canney, Karen Fruhwirth, Beverly Ford, Mai Loan, John Saxon, Marty Baleux and Steve.
