Mike and Cindy LaGrandier

Around 6am on Oct. 22nd a huge tree fell on Mike and Cindy's house while they were sleeping in Jonesboro, LA after strong straight line wind blew through the town.
My parents, brother, and their pets are all okay. The tree landed on the kitchen, caving it in. By the grace of God it did not go through their bedroom ceiling even though it went through the roof above the bedroom. My parents had no home owners insurance. The base which had to be at least 8ft in circumference landed on my mom's car crushing it. She only had liability. My dad, who is self-employeed as a fence installer, had his work truck with all of his equipment and tools crushed. A large limb landed right on the top of the cab and down the back. The limbs also landed on his trailer that was loaded with material for a fence job. There is significant damage to their house. Today several people came together to help aid my parents and myself to cut up the tree and clean up every thing. We had some amazing people helping all morning and evening to clear it out and get the tree off the house so we could get tarps on it. We would not have been able to do it without the help we received yesterday as well as the prayers and help we will continue receive.
We are not sure as of now what it will cost to repair our family home. I put an amount to be raised only because it was required.  Whether it is lending your time, thoughts, prayers or money we greatly appreciate every thing that every one has done and will do to help Mike and Cindy LaGrandier.
