The owners of what became known as the last house standing on Bolivar Peninsula are finally on the road to recovery. Pam and Warren Adams are moving back into their house in Gilchrist, almost a year after Hurricane Ike. Last September, Ike destroyed all the homes surrounding the Adams. It took them about 11 months to finish repairs, but they say they're glad to be back.

"The thing we're going to miss are the neighbors and friends. And when you look around, you used see all the houses and they're gone. But I'm sure they're going to come back," said Warren.

A memorial service will be held in Crystal Beach on September 12 to honor the hurricane victims.
