Complete loss house fire

This morning I woke up to a call no one ever wants to get. My childhood home, which my my brother and his family his wife and his little girl now own was burning from the inside out starting from the attic and eventually engulfing the whole house. Fire fighters are still battling flames as we speak. Winter is coming and my brother is a concrete construction worker who will be out of work for most of the winter as he is every year and always puts enough back to get by but in the craze of the fire left most of his saving the house. We are 2 months from Christmas and these guys have to start from scratch. No clothes, nothing but a coat each and their two dogs. One week before my fiancé’s and I wedding and the girls lost their dresses in the fire and one of the first things they tried to do when I showed up was apologize to me for probably not being able to be in the wedding cause the dresses were lost, of all things that was what was on their mind! Shows you the type of people they are...anything helps to get this family through what’s already been a difficult 2018 for our family. Thank you. 33708858_153942732296624_r.jpeg33708858_1539427362687947_r.jpeg
