This is a picture of my friend/co-worker's home. Burglarized and Burnt to the ground on November 12th, the Day after veteran's day. Calvin served in the USMC and the Army, what a TERRIBLE way for him to be honored by his fellow countrymen that he served to help protect. Calvin and his family, including three children lost everything in this fire. Thankfully, they were not home at the time. However, to make things worse, They weren't home because they were at his mothers house grieving for the the lose of his father that suddenly passed away ten days prior. These are terrible events for anyone to have to deal with, let alone this close to the holidays and being all at the same time. THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!

I didn't mention earlier that this family was only renting this house and didn't have any insurance yet. Therefore, even though it was arson there will be no help from there:-(
