New family loses everything

On the evening of Monday, April 30th, our uncle, Richard Boyd, his wife Robin, and their newly adopted daughter arrived home to find their house engulfed in flames. Fire fighters fought to contain the fire for hours however nothing remained standing but the stone fireplace.

Richard has lived in the Charlottesville/Nelson County, VA area for over 30 years. Robin is a self-employed painter and managed the home as a bed and breakfast. Richard is an architect who designed the Devil's Backbone Brewery locations and many other sites in the area. They had just registered their daughter, Izzy  for kindergarten in the fall.

Due to the fire, the family has to relocate quickly as they are left with nothing but the clothes on their backs.  They are in need of a home to rent, clothes, furniture, and other supplies to help rebuild their life.

 All donations will be used to help rebuild their life. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated to help this amazing family in their time of need.
