Friends...thank you all for your generous support. I have recently spoken to Nancy Lynn, Ms. Mary's niece, and she informed me that the work needed to be done will cost too much money and so Mary and her family have decided to sell the house. There will be fees and costs associated with the sale. If you would like to allow your donations to go toward her expenses, thank you. If you would like a refund, the family completely understands and there is no condemnation. I will be closing the site on Friday, March 28th. Thank you all for your prayers and generosity.

We have treated boards from a pool deck we tore down and other supplies that might be needed...could someone who has seen the house post a list of needed materials? And is there anyone out there with a truck who could pick up/deliver?

I do not have any money that I can donate to help this lady , but being a skilled craftsman I am willing to volunteer some of my time and labor to help in any manner, this woman should have the right to live out the rest of her days in the home she loves . It is after all her birth home and she has every right to spend the rest of her life there if she choices too, I may be also able to help donating some materials depending what is needed
