Orphaned at sea at just 11 years old, Terry Jo Duperrault's story is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it took over 50 years before she was ready to share her horrific experience publicly. But in bravely doing so with the book "Alone: Orphaned on the Ocean," she's given purpose to all of the pain she's overcome. And Terry Jo Duperrault now wants her unbelievable survival story to be a message of hope to encourage other hurting souls!


Realizing his time on earth was coming to an end, Texas dad Charles Torres made a video to say goodbye. He told his family just how much he loved them and then he was gone.
