Please help support my daughter and son in law, Nicole and Kenny as they recently lost everything in a tragic house fire in  Wallowa Oregon , on Thursday October 10, 2019 While Nicole was at work, and Kenny at work moving cattle, neither of them knew the devastation they would be coming home to later that day. Kenny and Nicole returned home, their ranch is not only their home.. it is their livelihood, and Thursday it was engulfed in flames and a complete loss. By the time the fire department arrived from the closest town, the flames and fire had already destroyed their home causing it to collapse under damage. Leaving Nicole and Kenny with no hope of saving anything, they lost everything  in the fire. They only walked away with the clothes on their back. But thank God all their lives were spared, including their dogs and kitty. Nicole and Kenny have made arrangements to stay with Kenny's family until further notice.  Nicole and Kenny along with both their family and friends are devastated and heartbroken over the loss of their home. Please continue to pray for Nicole and Kenny during this difficult time. They have been blessed with the overwhelming love and support from family, and friends, and All donations are gratefully accepted and appreciated.
UPDATE 10/13/2019-On October 20th, Kenny and Nicole will be celebrating their 1 year wedding anniversary. They were married right behind the home which is now gone, in a beautiful clearing surrounded by fall colored trees. They are a proud couple who live frugally and minimally as they build their ranch. It takes years, but they are "the cup is half full" couple. Kenny would post a picture of a little tractor rigged to work to replace a crucial piece of farm equipment that broke in the middle of working the land. Well pump breaks, stress? absolutely! But they kept their heads high, sometimes not so easy to do.. They do have insurance, but not likely enough to rebuild a proper home. Kenny bought this older ranch with visions of a bright future, and they knew it would take years, but they believe in hard work and set out to make their dreams come true. They still have a developing ranch with 200+ head of cattle to tend to every day, trying to make a living.  

I am Nicole's mom, Stephanie Fowler, and I live in Voorhees, NJ. I wish I could be there to help them, but I have to work and still have one child in high school. This one way I am hoping to help them. No amount is too small. Every donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
