WAYNE - A holiday homecoming ended on a happy note for three New Jersey brothers who have had a year full of sorrow.

John, Stephen and Christopher Voit were surprised by the community of Wayne with a newly renovated home. Their house was ruined earlier in the year by flooding from Hurricane Irene and fall storms.

Wayne was one of the hardest hit communities for flooding. The boys also lost their father earlier this year followed by their mother earlier this month.

The donors that helped the Voit children ranged from out-of-state residents to contractors and builders. Real Housewife of New Jersey Melissa Gorga and her husband, Joe, were also on hand.
