Cherie Williams and her family continue to persevere after having their Chatham, N.Y., home destroyed last spring.

Last spring, Cherie Williams was on vacation in St. Thomas when her neighbor called and frantically informed her that her home in Chatham, N.Y., was on fire. Her neighbor had seen the flames from down the street.

"Time just kind of froze," Williams recalled of what happen on March 19. "I didn't really know what to think."
