Fire burns down Shop/Office

My Father's(Jason Penfold) shop /office burned to the ground yesterday. It was a total loss. He literally just made it out before it was completely engolfed in flames. He has lost all of his tools and and supplies to keep his trucks and Machines going.  If you know my father u know he always fixes his own equipment and vehicles.  Without the basic essential tools he will have a hard time keeping his day to day life going.  At this point we are unsure what and when the insurance company will be able to cover...... All his personal and business records we lost in the fire.  This shop was full of memories and 30 years of collecting all the tools and things needed to run his business.  I think he spent more time in that building then he ever did at home!! This place was his home and his house was his home away from home!! This shop was not just where he ran his business but where he kept a whole life of invaluable family heirloom's, classic cars, projects he was working on for his children and grandchildren but if you know Jason it was where his hopes, dreams and heart was. It was more than a shop it was a man's legacy that was lost. Please find it in your heart to help him out with a small donation to help him rebuild and rekindle his dreams. No amount of money will ever replace what he has lost but it will help him to rebuild a practical part of what he now needs.  He would never ask for any help but I know it will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance for you help and support !
