Lifelong Friend Loses Home to Fire


My very dear childhood friend (Gena Jacob) and her family (wife-Sheri, daughter-Ashley, father-Arlin, and mother-Mary) lost their home, travel trailer, and all of their material possessions Sunday night as the Tubb Fire ravaged through their neighborhood.  They had minutes to flee their home with nothing but the clothes on their back.

This is what is left of their beautiful home where they raised their daughter, cared for their aging parents, and planned to spend the rest of their lives.

Everything they owned was destroyed by this fire.  They need assistance to replace everything from clothing to a place to live for themselves and their aging parents.   With the exception of a small processing fee charged by Go Fund Me, all proceeds go directly to Gena and Sheri upon receipt if donation.

No contribution is too small.   Thank you in advance for your contribution, love, and support.
