BRIMFIELD — For Ellen Sussman and her family, it's great to finally be home again.

Sussman is thankful to be alive after the June 1 tornado destroyed her 44 Paige Hill Road home. Less than 10 months later, she and her husband, David Stanley — as well as their children, Emma and Nick — have moved into their new home.

"It is really nice to be back home, even though there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done," Sussman said. "The community spirit I have seen is amazing, and we have a great sense of optimism moving forward."
