Helping Dad (Big Al, Pops) Rebuild!

As many of you now know on Saturday evening my family faced a major tragedy.  (Grandma, Dad, Jake & I are neighbors) The kids & I walked out on the porch at about 7pm to feed the dogs & seen my father, Brother & Grandmothers “Everything” in flames. I immediately went in to fight of flight mode, as I called for emergency help I secured my babies and ran to find my Father and Grandmother and brother. The fire was out of control.  The local fire departments showed up on scene, being in a rural area, without the access to fire hydrants, the trucks ran out of water 5-6 times.... With that being said the fire spread from the garage to grandmas shed & to Daddy’s workshop... We are so very thankful for the help of Lena Volunteer Fire department & a few friend and family members. Dads/Grandmas & Jake/Dyna’s home was saved only having minor damages.
Those of you who know my father know that his work is everything, he takes so much pride in what he does, & he is really good at it, to be quite frank, his work has kept him alive. (He has 3 types of cancer, 16 yrs ago he was diagnosed with lymphoma & given 6 months, beating all odds he still prevails)
Either way, Daddy lost everything.. the tools he uses on a daily basis and the truck he relies on for transportation, every memory of his father and grandfather he has... I’m not one to ask for help but this time it’s different. Anyone willing to help with monetary donation, tools, supplies etc.. it will be very much appreciated. It is going to take a lot to get Dad back on his feet. Any help in “helping Alan rebuild” would be a blessing! Feel free to PM me/call/text [phone redacted]106. Thank you all!
