Unfortunately the entire family home was lost along with two of their beloved dogs Maple and Syrup. All of their belongings were destroyed. The shop which contained all of the tools that Berney used for work to build houses in his local area, has also been lost along with their children's dirt bikes, toys and equipment used for working on the property. A vehicle was also lost during the fire, which the family relied on daily.
The 8 people who live at this home no longer have anything left except the clothes on their backs and with no insurance on the home they will be rebuilding from the ground up on their own.
This will be a long road for them to travel in the coming days ahead as they deal with the devastation and to rebuild their home and lives.
I have had the pleasure of knowing the Duits family for many years and they would give you the shirt off their back, even today.
For those who know the Duits's know that today and always they are counting their blessings & are so thankful that no one was injured in this tragic event.
For a family that has always given so much love and support to others we are asking for your help today in any way possible. Any funds raised will go towards helping the family purchase food, clothing, necessities, and eventually begin to rebuild their home.
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
