Guerrant Family Home Fire Disaster



On October 9th, Ed & Coleen's house of 27 plus years was burned to the ground in the Santa Rosa Firestorm. EVERYTHING was reduced to ash and rubble. They have been absolutely devastated and find it unbelievable that all has been lost, from precious photographs, antique collectibles, to every imaginable household item.

This situation has been very overwhelming, especially for Coleen who has been battling cancer for over 20 years and now has to deal with this disaster while being in and out of the hospital due to her current health.  And also for my dad who moved around a lot in the Air Force and after serving 22 years, he was happy to have a home where he would settle down and never have to move again.

That night on October 9th they received a call from their neighbor to evacuate their house immediately and take any precious belongings. Unfortunately the timing was bad because they were in Monterey for two days as this was a rare time Coleen was off of chemo and was able to take a short local trip without being sick. So they were not able to save anything from their home, just a few articles of clothes and their cell phones that they took on their trip.

While insurance will be helping, it will be very costly to repurchase the necessities that were lost. The money donated will be used to purchase household items.

Both Ed and Coleen are fighters in different ways but now they need support from their family, friends and this community network of those that are generous enough to donate.

Any donation will tremendously help them to rebuild their lives over again.

Thank you,

Sheri (daughter)
