"Come on home now..."

"Come on home now. Someone's kicked the door open and emptied the house."
That's the phone call she received from her husband.

Nearly everything was gone. All they left behind was the big furniture and appliances, but those aren't much use any more either. You see, the burglars didn't just empty the house; they ran the water and flooded it. Everything is effectively gone or ruined. All the neighbors where at work and the only ones that normally would have been around to see anything were out with their grandkids.

This lady has worked for many years at the same HS from which she graduated. The same HS her 3 kids, my brothers, my Dad, Uncle and I graduated from. She's a great person and she, along with her husband, raised a great family.

Now I'm asking friends of hers, friends of mine, and strangers alike to pay it forward as she has done with her time and effort for countless youth and endless hours.

Home owner's insurance or not, it will be hard to replace everything, especially that which held no monetary value. Any donation will help. If you can find $5 in the jeans you wore last week you can donate just $5 here.

I am in the military, stationed overseas and would like nothing more than to help them, but seeing how it would be hard to be there gofundme.com is my next best option. 

Kathy and Terry, thank you for being who you are and thank you for all the mentorship you have provided to the youth of Arlington, Texas over the past few decades. I don't know why someone would do this to you, but I hope these donations come through in your quest to restart your home from scratch.
