Saved alive, but dream in flames

For over 30 years I dreamed of living on a boat.  2 1/2 years ago my dream was realized!  We found the 'perfect' live-aboard: a 42' double cabin CrisCraft in move-in condition!  Our next 'good' decision: docking at Dania Beach Marina, Dania Beach.

This morning, without warning, about 4:30 AM our dream boat was engulffed in flames!  Were it not for Greg Heath, who keeps a boat on our dock, waking us up to warn us of the fire, we would have perished.

Taking stock:  virtually every sentimental possession of Carolyn and mine (Carl)  were destroyed.  Because of how quickly we had to get off the boat, we were able to grab no personal possessions.  Our car keys,our driver's licenses, our ready cash, our jewelry, our phones, computers, lap tops, ipads, TVs, etc......all gone.

Whatever help you might feel led to give......we will be grateful to you forever!!
