Paradise lostTragedy has struck again for Lazy Lester’s widow Pike Kaksonen. Losing Lester just 2 months ago and now losing the house that she and Lazy Lester shared in Paradise California for the last 15 years. It was engulfed by the fires there. Now their piece of paradise is gone. She needs our help. The fire took everything including the entire town. It’s hard to put a price on starting completely over when you have nothing. This initial campaign will help cover housing, clothing, food, cooking utensils, basic household items and travel when needed. She managed to leave safely with only her dog, passport, and Lester’s instruments. She is currently staying in a Super 8 hotel with other family and friends.

Here’s a message from Pike and an update:
“Thank you all for your outpouring love and generosity. Because of you help, I’m able to stay a couple more nights in the hotel then my family, Bear (my dog) and I got an RV loan to us to put on a friends mothers property about an hour west of Paradise. I will send updates soon by way of Becky. Thank you and love you all.
