Help Taft rebuild!

Please help us help our 78 year old cousin, Taft! He is in a tough stage of rebuilding things right now.
He lost his wife of 49 years, Peggy, last month and Hurricane Harvey just flooded his home in Houston. One week after Peggy's memorial service, Taft and his sister had to be rescued from the house by the Coast Guard! In addition to losing his wife, he has lost
most of his material belongings. The vast majority of the furniture had to be tossed to the curb. All flooring had to be removed, as well as, drywall and insulation
(throughout the whole house). His car was flooded. Memories were quite literally "washed away". Unfortunately, due to Peggy's long term illnesses and expensive medical bills, flood insurance was not a top priority. In such a tough time, if anyone could financially contribute it would really help get Taft back on his feet!
