In the early morning hours of Tuesday 3/3/14 an The Wilkes family, Chris, Paige, Virginia and Emily, an Esmont family lost their home and their belongings.  Luckily (more like PRAISE THE LORD!!) all family memebers



including pets, are safe and sound! This includes 2 young girls as well as their parents.  They do have family in the area for temporary placement; they have not secured permanent residence where they can plant roots again.  A donation of money will help them to secure items they need once they are able to find a permanent place to call home again, as well as support any upcoming needs while they hash things out with the insurance company.  They are not even sure where to begin or what they need at this time, as it is a confusing and scary time.  I also believe that with a monetary gift you will be helping restore their faith in the world at a low point as they can use all the positive energy that can come their way! Any contributions will be helpful as well as greatly appreciated!! Thanks to all who have read this and to those that are able to give, MUCH LOVE!!
