Amoroso's Need Help-Home Fire

Our dear family members Jack (87 years old) (my cousin) & Patti in Coconut Grove FL, lost everything except their car and the clothes on their back in a  house fire 9/23/17 (caused by a downed power line that the electric company didn't realize was live) after Hurricane Irma and need any help you can offer. They did not have insurance.

In Jack's own words from Facebook

Jack Amoroso checked in to Sonesta Coconut Grove Miami.September 24 at 3:13pm · Miami :

"the electrical co. Hadn't noticed their transformer grounding wire to our home was broken & hanging in the street... we took the transformer voltage could. Have died had we touched a light switch... Lucky to have gotten Patti out. Such a nightmare... everything,everything gone... from our beginnings till present"

Jack is a world reknowned artist and has been an artist all his life...He lost all... "Our home, studio & every ...all gone... every thing! - from childhood on... ..."

All donations will go directly to the Amoroso's! They are currently in a hotel room (that was donated to them for a week) but will have to secure a home, furnishings and clothing sometime soon.  But they need money more than anything right now. THEY HAVE NOTHING

Thank you for all donations and prayers.
Jack and Patti are finally out of the hotel and back into a home but this is a rental home in the Gables. Its a good start to a new life again. thanks to the many people and especially the cousins that have donated to the cause. we are truly a blessed group of cousins and friends.
Jack and Patti are feeling the love of all the friends and relatives some that they dont even know. is this a great world or what????

Donations are going to them directly to be able to help with their new home, living expenses and whatever they need.
Albert (Jack's cousin in Palm Coast, Fl.)

In order to withdraw funds for Jack I have to mention:

Jack and I are first cousins, I will be withdrawing the funds and mailing Jack a personal check from me. The funds go to him for living expense since the house fire took everything they had.
