Fire Destroys Crazy Ed's Home

Black Canyon City, AZ
A fire broke out at the RV trailer park Crazy Ed and Maria Chilleen live at this morning and destroyed their home. Ed reports that they lost everything including their beloved cat Pepe. The fire started at a RV next to them and very quickly spread leaving no time to recover anything out of their RV.
After the closure of Crazy Ed’s Satisfied Frog in Cave Creek, AZ in 2004, Ed and Maria have spent the last 14 years rebuilding their savings having lost most of their retirement income.
In 2013 Ed and partners started the Satisfied Frog in Rock Point Mexico on a shoe string and have been building this successful business over the last 4 years. During this rebuilding and rebranding of the Satisfied Frog, Ed and partners have taken very little in the form of compensation, instead opting for putting monies back into the business.
Living on a fixed income with little extra income coming in has made this tragedy all that much harder with no additional available funds to rebuild Ed & Maria's life and home.
Ed and Maria have lost everything. Their home, medicine, medical supplies, clothes, phone, computers and Pepe their cat.
This Go Fund Me is being set up to help them recover a new (used) RV, clothing, medicine and other items to get started again.
Ed turns 80 years old in August. This is not an easy thing to recover from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

More information and updates as we get them.

Prayers and well wishes welcomed and encouraged.
