Fire Destroyed Cleveland Home

One of Cleveland's own! 

John and Joyce Nekl are two of the most thoughtful & hard working people that I have the pleasure of knowing.  

It was the exactly 31 years ago that they bought their home that it caught on fire and now is destroyed along with many treasured belongings.  We were celebrating a birthday at the Cleveland Zoo when the call came in that their home was on fire.

It's hard to wrap your mind around what happened, imagine losing possessions you've spent a lifetime accumulating.  There isn't a way to replace everything and even replacing the basics will take some doing.

Any funding (no matter how small) would greatly help relieve The Nekl's of some of the financial stress this situation has created.  Please give if you can, they will never ask, but the burden they are facing is unreal right now 

Send them love, prayers, and thoughts as they deserve all of that and more.  Any funds will be used for restoring/rebuilding and replacing personal belongings.

Thank you very much.  I know they'll be thankful for all of the support they'll get.
