Friends, we need help. Fire took our home.

Yesterday, Dec 11th, we lost everything when our home of 10 years was totally destroyed by fire. We humbly ask for the support of our friends and family to help us into a new home this holiday season. Skyler is recovering in Iowa city hospital with smoke inhalation, we are so grateful he will be alright. Sadly we lost 8 pets, heartbroken is an understatement. We are open to any and all help, financial, personal items or just your business at the Troy Store. Thank you my friends, you are the true blessing!
