Faces of Sandy: Gail Mero

The only piece that remains of Gail Mero's Bay Park home, which was condemned and demolished six months ago, is a strip of wood that she pryed from the doorway of her 19-year-old son's room before the storm hit. Mero, 52, plans to install the strip, which she had used to record her son's height throughout his childhood, into her new modular, "hurriance-proof" house once it's erected to make it feel more like home.
