Last week Hurricane Sandy flooded Tami and Anthony's Wantagh home with
seawater and home heating fuel. They lost almost everything. The house
had to be gutted. Their furniture, appliances, wedding pictures, home
videos and other belongings were destroyed. They are awaiting
contractors to start the rebuilding process. Insurance will pay for
some but not nearly all of their replacement costs. After living with
a few great friends this last week, they are moving into a hotel with their two
small children and the family dog Sammy while they rebuild. This is coming after a particularly
harrowing year for them as Tami
underwent brain surgery for an Aneurysm just this past February.
Many people have been asking me how they can help, what they can donate. Since they are not in their house right now the best thing we can do for them is to set up a fund for them to use as they are able to piece their lives back together.
A little, together, will go a long way. Thoughts and prayers are with all whom have been effected. xoxo Debra
