Last March, a tornado tore through Holly, a tiny Hamlet in southeastern Colorado. Gus Puga and his family were particularly hurt. The tornado ripped apart their house, throwing Puga, his wife Rosemary, and their three-year-old daughter into a tree. Rosemary quickly died from injuries sustained in the trauma. Now, Puga, as a single father, and the residents of Holly are trying to get on with their lives, but the slow pace of change is complicating their efforts to put the past behind. Our slideshow gives you an intimate look at the town and its most devastated survivor.
