House Fire in London, Tx

I am so heartbroken, I was woken up at 4 AM Sunday Morning (yesterday) to the tragic news that my nephew's wife and my great niece were killed in their house by fire and smoke inhalation. Jatisa Norton and her daughter Jaycie Norton both perished. Little Joely is in University Hospital in San Antonio in critical condition with the effects of the fire, and please pray for her as well. She will need several weeks of hospitilization if she does survive, the doctors say she is lucky to be alive. Patty Eckert, Jatisa's mother, has lost her daughter, her granddaughter and her entire home. It was a raging inferno, that the small town of London had never seen. Patty lost everything, years of memories and her precious loves.
I am helping to raise this money, to help them with funeral expenses, and all the necessities that she will need to begin again, if that's possible. The wonderful people of London and Junction are doing a lot. Her brother in law has given them a temporary home to stay in, but she still needs all the necessities to go with it. Beds, bed linens, clothing, hygeine materials, household goods, all of it.
Junction National Bank has set up a fund for them as well.
As I understand it, these are the sizes of clothing for Patty, Jamie and Joely. They only have the clothes on their back, y'all please help, even if it's to get together a set of clothes for them.
My sister Flo Norton, the other grandmother lost a lot in this too as she was helping with the care of the girls, when Patty and Jatisa worked.

Patty's sizes -- 3x clothing, shirts and pants, extra large undies, bra size 44D or 46D, will verify, size 8 shoes.
Jamie -- Size 8 - 11 in pants, large undies, size 36C bra, Large blouse in womens, and size 8 shoe.

Joely -- I know this sounds odd for a 10 year old, but she's a very big girl, size 16-18 in pants, Large women's blouses, large panties, I don't believe she wears a bra yet, size 9 shoe.

There is nothing better than giving and loving your family and wanting to be there for them. There is not much this time of year that I can do, but be there for them. Please God lift them all up, because the next situation is a funeral for Jaycie and Jatisa, and we all know how much those cost. Even though, it most likely will be a cremation due to the condition of the bodies, not totally sure, but would assume, Patty will need help to bury her girls. Please pray for Patty too, she has lost a lot more than most of us could ever imagine. So, if you find it in your heart to give, please give generously. If you can't give monetary funds, please help by sharing this Fund to all of your friends and family. If you have clothing or supplies to donate, such as hygeine or bedding or household goods, contact me at [phone redacted], I can get it to them.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers during this time.
