Dan & Emily - Fire Relief Support

Dear Friends and Family of Dan and Emily,

This past Saturday (1/25/14), Dan and Emily's Wauconda home burned to the ground. We are so very fortunate that they are physically OK but everything they had is now gone: their cozy house, their clothes, priceless photos, and wedding gifts. The fire jumped from the house to Dan's shed and he lost all of his tools as well.

We are setting up a fire relief fund to help them start a new beginning. If you are able, any amount that you can donate will make a tremendous difference to them and is very much appreciated.

We are so grateful that no one was hurt and this is the blessing that we all have to hang onto now! We must remember even though they have lost all material things, they still have good friends and treasured memories, now and forever. We're all in this thing called "life" together. Thank you so much from Dan and Emily!
