The 47-year-old continued, “People are suffering way more than I am. People have helped me get through my despair with their love and inspiration and now it is my turn.”
Bethany also explained that post-hurricane efforts were always something inspired by Dennis. She said, “He embraced and applauded everything I did and cheered me on from the sidelines."
