last night my brother, Dustin and his wife Ashley lost their house, barn and everything they own to a house fire. Dustin, Ashley and the kids are safe and unharmed. They had 2 beloved fur babies they loved dearly. No sign if the 2 dogs made it out alive. They also had 5 cats - also no sign of the cats at this time. They had multiple chickens - 3 made it out alive to our knowledge.
All worldly possessions including 2 cars that were in the garage were lost in the fire.
As of right now dustin, his wife and children are all sharing a room at his parent's house with the clothing they wore to school and work. we're all still in shock and truly devastated not only that their home they just purchased less than a year ago and put so much work into is completely gone but their beloved pets they babied like their own children are gone. In my 26 years of existence I've seen my brother cry twice: once out of happiness at his wedding and last night when he lost everything and his fur babies in the fire.
What we're hoping to do with this gofundme: we need to replace all clothing items for Dustin, Ashley and the children. some children's toys, toiletries and basic living expenses such as groceries, etc.
we'd appreciate all the support our community, friends and family have to offer - not just financially but emotionally. donations of clothing and toys in lieu of financial support are more than welcomed.
we never thought we would post a gofundme, you don't expect something like this to happen to your or your family until it happens.
please hug your family and fur babies a little tighter tonight for all of us here.
