The Root Rebuild. From The Ashes...

My name is Jessica Root and I have started this campaign for the two people who have raised and taught me to be the person I am today, my parents. Ron and Kathy Root moved to Glen Ellen in 1994 and started a life here. We built our house from the ground up. With help from friends and family the first go round. In the hours of Monday morning Oct 9th they lost the house they built for our family and everything we had in it. Old pictures, my grandmothers stichings,family recipes, our farm, childhood memories. My daughter's whole childhood was in that house. Today we have been humbled in a way we never really could have imagined. We will rebuild. We are safe. Please help my family start the long process of healing and rebuilding a new dream. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
