The Troys are living in a house in Point Lookout, N.Y., donated by strangers who found them. Denihan, who suffered near-death experiences that convinced him his purpose in life was to help others, is paying for renovations to the Troy's home. He has instructed his workers to have the house ready by Christmas. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
