On the night of January 31st Cousin Tonio heard glass shatter, and asked Myrna to check on Santa whom they referred to as cal Mamita. When Myrna exited the bedroom, she immediately saw that one side of the house was engulfed in flames. Myrna altered her husband Tonio, and they proceeded to wake up Mamita. They were able to escape wearing nothing but their night clothes. The family cat and dog were able to be saved, but the pet birds that Mamita and her grandchildren raised were lost in the fire. Twenty-Five years of Mamita’s memories and possessions went up in flames on this horrific night. Thank God they survived, but now they must try and rebuild. They were left with nothing – not even a pair of shoes to wear.
Any donations and prayers would be appreciated as Mamita tries to get back on her feet!
