We all know that insurance will help with a good bit of the house, but never a complete amount. As they are retired, the clear need is for some funding to help them cover expenses over the short term, and while the house gets repaired. It's impossible to estimate how much is needed, but if we could all collectively raise $10,000, I think that would go along way towards helping.
As of now, generous friends are arranging for some short-term furniture, and a friendly church is loaning them a house for a bit, so it's not like they need stuff, or are homeless. But they will experience some serious cash outlays over thinnest few months that they were not prepared for.
The funds will be needed as soon as possible. It's impossible to describe how much Ann and Bill have meant to our family, and to thousands of families along the shoreline through their years here. Now it's our turn! Thanks for anything any of you can do.
