For Benefit of Joe Miles' Family

No one should have to go through the pain of losing a child, especially not 5 plus his wife.  A mother, Annette Miles (40), and her 5 kids: Zane Long (19), Bryli Long (16), Traydon Miles (10), Kesston Miles (9), & Dezli Miles (7), lost their lives yesterday after a massive fire killed at least eight people (6 in one family) and destroyed dozens of boats at the Jackson County Park Marina in Scottsboro, Alabama, early Monday, January 27, 2020. The vessel the family was on became engulfed in flames after an attempt to escape, and their father, Joe Miles was rescued from the water with burns. He has lost his home, everything he owns, everything was replaceable, except for his family.  We have had so many people reach out today to offer their support and donations. Please know we appreciate all of this and request any monetary donation go to the  fund setup at First Southern State Bank in Higdon, or with this GoFund me account that is linked directly to account. We continue to ask for prayers in this tragic time. I would like to personally thank everyone so much for everything that have already done.  God Bless! "The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" Psalm 34:18
