Support for the Long Family

On July 3rd, 2020, Rachel Long, daughter of James (Jessica) Wood and Trisha Wood, was a victim in an apartment fire and did not survive.

Rachel was able to make it to the balcony, where she dropped her son, Jameson, to neighbors waiting below. Eyewitnesses stated that Rachel was on fire at that time, but rather than jumping herself to safety, she went back in for her daughter Roxanne and sadly, did not return.   Reports say a passerby kicked in the door of an already engulfed apartment and heroically saved Roxxi.

Rachel, 30, was a mother, a wife, a sister, daughter, and granddaughter.  She was a beautiful, spirited young woman who always lived life fully and on her own terms. She was the light of her daddy’s life.  She is truly a hero. She made the ultimate sacrifice for her children.

Corey, her husband, has no home now and both children are currently hospitalized.  He is facing costs of at least 8 surgeries for Roxxi.  Please contribute if you feel led to help the Long family in these horrific times. They need our prayers and our finances.
