We are happy to report, they have made it back home!

Husband and wife, John Hutton and Kathleen O’Neill found out Monday afternoon they would be returning to their home with the help of Senator Thom Tillis getting them a charter flight.

They are currently on a plane, and will be making a stop in Atlanta, then Charlotte to be picked up and driven home.

We will keep you posted as we hear more good news from the two.
