Thank you so much for the prayers for our Mom, Sister and Brother in law (Anne Ashworth, Leslie and Paul Bugio respectively). We are still waiting for the water to recede in Bear Creek, which is adjacent to the Addicks Reservoire (the source of controlled flooding). Last week, two of our family members homes had 3-4 feet of standing water. The water is receding daily, but they are still recovering salvageable property via boats until the roads are deemed passable. However, the long term damage and toxic waters are still a concern. We hesitate to ask for financial support, but several of you have indicated you would prefer to donate to someone you know-versus a fund. If you are so inclined, the link to donate is attached. Your donations will help pay for temporary housing, incidentals lost in the flood and expenses associated with recovery and demolition efforts.
Don't feel pressure, as we know everyone is close to friends of family affected by this catastrophe.
Tearful but with enduring hope,
Val and Lisa
