I Changed My Mind...

The more I've thought about it the more I realized... spreading the word about the fire is the only way we're going to get help for my neighbors. So, here's the photo of their house:

It was confirmed that nothing was salveageable, the house and it's contents are a total loss. It appears as though the garage wasn't damaged but from the back you can see that there's nothing really behind the door other than a pile of burnt wreckage. The fire climbed the front of the house, entered the attic and was uncontrollable from there. The roof collapsed in on the second floor, the second floor then mostly collapsed to the ground.

We are accepting donations at my house and are starting a donation fund at a local bank. Please spread the word, we appreciate any help we can get for this family of four.

If you have any questions please contact me at and I will respond as soon as possible.

My jaw dropped when I saw the image of the burned house! At first I thought it was yours, then was relieved to find out it wasn't. Still a tragedy, nonetheless. Prayers for the family. Email me and remind me to donate! My brain is in old timer's mode!

in response to your question, dh and I were married in October of 2005. That's so cute how you and dh remember your date! :)
