My cousin, Martin, and his two boys lost a home in the Colorado floods. Luckily, the boys were not home the night that the flood took the front of the house and most of their possessions. It was a blessing that Martin woke to the noise and smell of a backing-up septic system and just escaped with their cat. They could use some help putting their lives back together--they have lost most of their furniture, office equipment and kitchen. Since many relatives and friends have asked how they might help, I've established this fund to assist Martin, Field and Holden to create a new home. Please considering contributing what you can, and thanks!

From Martin:

With the calendar year turning and the season of joy, gratitude and feasting now officially behind us,
it is more important than ever to keep reminding ourselves that we have joy, gratitude and feasting in and around us every day. The kindness shown toward our family will be a constant way for me to remember this. I want to take another opportunity to thank everyone that has helped me prepare to launch our next chapter. Field, Holden and I have landed comfortably in Longmont, Colorado, which is approximately 7 miles east of Lyons. We have discussed the opportunities in front of us and have decided to eventually move back to Lyons. The boys are entrenched in the schools and personally
the area just fits me. The main problem is the limited supply of housing in the immediate area. Approximately 1/4 of the housing stock in a town of 1500 is severely damaged. I have been appointed to a Housing Recovery Task force and will have a voice in how our town addresses the short and long term housing future. This should prove to be a lengthy, challenging process in which I will certainly learn and grow. Please know that there will always be deep bottom of my heart gratitude toward all of you, forever. Nothing is familiar and in the New Year that is getting to be ok.
Best thoughts and wishes,
Martin

From Martin:

Thank You ALL!

For the love and feeling spread around me, I am forever grateful.
I have found comfort"¦. like water I am finding my own level.
For now.
Life deals us some crazy cards"¦..as Cool Hand Luke said "Sometimes nothing is a pretty cool hand."

Stuff is nothing. Nothing that in the big picture, matters.
What matters is that all the kindness, love and support will help me find my high water mark.
(Sorry about the puns"¦but they are appropriate.)
The fact is, that the bonds that we all share and remember and relish are bonds that are true.
True in regards to what matters in life. True in the sense that you all will help me provide another home for Field, Holden and myself.

I have gotten choked up and emotional more than once while looking at the responses, names, and recollections of our connections to one another"¦..even if time and distance has made them remote.
Nostalgia is a powerful tonic and comforting emotion for any of us"¦..and I have had waves of it going through this process.
I hope and pray that life is treating you ALL well in these chaotic, turbulent times.
Thank you is not really sufficient to describe the feelings of gratitude for the help in launching the next chapter.
Be well, best thoughts and wishes to everyone.
Love,
Martin
