They will rise again

In 2017 my dear friend Kumasi (and his family) were victims of a "once in a lifetime" flood. Instead of succumbing to the circumstances... Kumasi was on his boat, rescuing others from the rising waters. He was a part of what people in LA refer to as "The Cajun Navy".  Not for a single second did Kumasi let this tragedy hold him back. Today, Kumasis friends, co-workers and I received the heartbreaking news that a devistating house fire has stolen the rest of their possessions. Although he, his beautiful wife Rebecca and 2 childeren are unharmed physically... I can't begin to imagine the toll it takes in ones heart and spirit.   This is my first experience with Go Fund Me... truely, I can't think of anyone more deserving of our LOVE and generosity than The Mantz Family. Please, help us help them.
