Fatal Family House Fire

In the early hours of Thursday, October 15, a fatal fire devastated the Brown/Trotter family. 

Not only has Ray, Ian, Linsey and Chase lost their home and lifetime possessions, nothing can replace the life that was lost, 11 year old Brooke.

We understand this fundraiser can’t bring Brooke back or relieve the pain of their brokenhearted family, but we do hope it helps with travelling to visit Linsey while she recovers in the hospital, secure housing and purchase clothing and household goods.

We know that many in the community, including family and friends, want to support Ian, Linsey and Chase during this difficult time; we also recognize that many people are facing hardships and we want you to know that we are extremely grateful for any donation.
