Celtics Blog legend FLCeltsFan and her family were hit hard by the Hurricane Michael. We've never done anything like this before, but let's be CelticsStrong for someone whose dedication has been an amazing and consistent source of entertainment and information for our community. Her real name is Shirley Coshatt, and in her limited ability to communicate, she mentioned that two trees crushed her roof. They are unharmed, but have no power or running water.
Here is a note from Shirley when, fellow moderator Nickagneta reached out to her:
"Thank you so much for the kind words. Truth is we can use any help we can get. We have insurance but also have a large deductible and we have a lot of damage and have lost so much stuff from the roof crashing into the house and all the rain that came with it.
I'm thankful for an air force unit that helped get the trees out of the roof so we have tarps there to keep mosquitoes and rain out. They finally cleared part of our road so we can get in and out now and were able to get out and get water. But gas is impossible to get right now.
This area was hit so hard so I am thankful we are all alive and are able to fix the house eventually. I miss Celticsblog and Celtics Strong so much. I will be thinking of all of you and my Celtics tonight and will check in when I can with my son's phone. We still have no cell service on ours.
Thank you again for your thoughts, prayers, and kindness."
As part of the GoFundMe requirements, I have been asked to identify myself as well. I am Andy Needel, aka Redz, and I am proud to represent our community in support of FlCeltsFan.
Please give what you can. Thanks.
