Help Rebuild After Devastating Fire

On Monday, December 8, my mother Charley Oldham and her husband Mark Gall lost everything in a devastating house fire that claimed the lives of their eight companion animals. Mark bravely tried to rescue the four dogs and four cats, but the fire was too intense, and they all perished. Mark is in the hospital with burns to his face, hands and arms after his heroic rescue attempt. Over 25 years ago, mom and Mark bought this small farmhouse in severe disrepair, and over the years, Mark built out the house to include a new kitchen, bathroom, living room and beautiful porch. They finally had their dream house on a farm surrounded by their faithful companion animals. While mom and Mark survived and have one another, they are left with an enormous heartache for the loved ones lost in the fire and their sweet home.
