Christophe, Emilie and I are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support, kind words and generous donations we have received from family, friends, colleagues and people we don't even know both via this GoFundMe page, via the mail, people dropping clothing, shoes, donations and gifts at our home, my mom's home, Kristy's home, at our hotel, etc. It has been incredible.
We are taking each day moment by moment. The support and kindness we have received from everyone is what is enabling us to keep going and forge a new life path for our family.
On Sunday evening, August 24th we suffered a devastating loss when our home caught on fire. We lost our beloved dogs (Lilly, Emmie, and Lana), our precious cats (Aloha and Ambrosia) and our beautiful turtle (Sheldon) and most of our worldy possessions.
We were fortunate to be able to retrieve a few items from our home but we will be starting completely over with everything - furniture, clothing, kitchen, bathroom items, etc. Currently we are staying close to the home in an extended stay hotel, with plans to find a rental home after the Labor Day weekend.
We are eternally grateful for all the money that has been raised to help us get settled into a new home so we can focus on healing our hearts and minds and providing a happy home filled with love for Emilie.
Sending our love and eternal gratitude,
Andrea, Emilie and Christophe Lamarsaude
