63 year old who lost all to fire

63 year old Mark Knepper was traveling with his 87 year old mother to visit one of his siblings when he received terrible news.

In the middle of the night a fire engulfed the house he lived in with his  wife and mother in law inside.

His wife perished in the fire. His mother in law barely survived with severe burns. The house is gone - with all they had inside.


As he struggles to piece together his life; with no wife, no home, no insurance, and no money to speak of.  We - his family - ask that if you have a few bucks to spare, you donate it here. 

Help a man who lost everything get on his feet. Help him find a new place to call home. Help him live again. 27911624_15192553670_r.jpeg
