My brother in law and sister, Bryan and Carol Patnode, lost their home, June 30, after a strong storm came through Iowa Park, Tx.
Bryan is only 58 years old and is already in the latter stages of dementia. Carol, is his wife and full time caregiver. Those of you who have dealt with this disease understand how difficult it is for the caregiver and family. You lose the person you've made so many memories with and life changes completely. Your spouse, who used to provide for you, now, cannot be left alone. You begin taking care of an adult, who is now like a child. It's heart wrenching because you can't even carry on a conversation anymore. There is no more reasoning with your loved one and NOTHING makes sense.
Then, life throws you another curve ball and you lose your home, the one place you feel safe, the place you can go and cry. How much can one soul endure? So, you trust in God that he's going to see you through. We all have bad days, but when you look around, there's always someone who has it so much worse.
Our goal is to replace their destroyed home.
They do own the property their home sits on and we would like to replace the destroyed home with a new trailer home.
We are so blessed! Please share those blessings and help Bryan and Carol rebuild their home.
