(Spartanburg Herald Journal) Beaudell Gilliam hoped that her husband would soon be able to get over his physical ailments enough to repair the leaking roof of the home that they had shared for 58 years. She hoped that they could quit catching rain drops in buckets throughout the house and that they could remove the ugly tarps from their roof. Unfortunately, he did not get better, and when he died, Beaudell believed she would have to abandon the home that she so loved. Then The Fuller Center got involved. "I thank God for them being here," she said.
