Dianne's House was destroyed

Dianne Curtiss, my friend and employee suffered the loss of her home in the Memphis storm of May 27, 2017. Although she was home when a huge oak crashed into her house, neither she nor her cats were hurt. But her house is uninhabitable.

Dianne has been saving and preparing for her well-deserved retirement this fall. Although covered by insurance, Dianne and her cats will be living in a hotel until her home is rebuilt.

Before the contractors can begin she must go through all of her belongings and save those things that are salvageable.

She has already incurred well over $1000 in out-of pocket expenses and I am sure that during the six-eight months that she will be living in a hotel, she will have many more expenses.

Retiring from a job of 37 years is a life-changing event, having your home destroyed and belongings damaged can be devastating.

Please help us help Dianne get back on her feet.
