FAIRDALE, Ill. (WREX) -

It's been seven months since a deadly tornado ripped through Fairdale. In the process of rebuilding a home, one couple of this rural community received a surprise. 

Thanks to Crimson Valley of Rockford, the residents now have landscaping. Rodney and Stefanie Jacobson lost their home to the tornado last April. Family and friends gathered to celebrate a home that is now almost complete. 

"There's no words to express the love and everything that everybody has come together and what they've done for us and this is the proof." said Stefanie Jacobson 

Rodney and Stefanie expect to celebrate Christmas in their new home this year.
