Dave Shelton

As you may have seen on the news or Facebook, Dave Shelton (my father-in-law) was recently the victim of arson, resulting in the absolute destruction of his home and every last one of his worldly possessions. He has been hand-building this beautiful home for the past 25 years, just to have everything obliterated by a bitter man that Dave had been trying to help in recent months. Due to a very unfavorable insurance situation, Dave likely won't receive anything to help him rebuild the home he's poured his blood, sweat, and tears into over the years, and every bit of his vast collection of art, irreplaceable family heirlooms, musical instruments/equipment, and hard-earned memories have been taken from him. Please help to provide at least a building block to start piecing some things back together for him.  Funds will go directly to Dave to be used for clean-up of the property, interim housing, and/or materials for rebuilding.  Thank you for your support.
