SOUTHBRIDGE — Dealing with insurance companies can often times be a frustrating experience, especially when it delays plans to rebuild a home following a disaster.

Such was the case for Steve Gregoire, whose 555 Pleasant Street home was heavily damaged by the June 1, 2011 tornado. He has waited 10 months for his insurance company to provide the funds necessary to begin rebuilding, and things are finally starting to come together.

"My life has been put on hold over the last 10 months, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the new house built and moving in," Gregoire said.
