Hope After a Fire

Our father lost his home to a fire on June 3, 2018. He's ok. It's devastating. It was the family home. Our great-grandmother raised her children there, as did my parents years later. Although changes were made to it, the home has been a fixture in the community (Inglewood, Nova Scotia) for almost 200 years.  Tough to think about for us all, and my Dad especially. He had lived there for about 35 years...but he's ok and we all know that's the main thing. Although he does have a home to go to, it is not his own. He is staying with family. There isn't much of anything that was salvageable.  There was no insurance, and my father is retired. Big Boy (Dad's dog) is ok, but Missy (Dad's cat) did not survive.
Of course we have no idea what the cost of clean-up or rebuilding would be, or if rebuilding is even an option. We know the land is where his heart is, and I'm sure Dad wants to rebuild there. My Dad's a quiet guy who normally wouldn't ask for help, so his children are asking for him. We thank-you all for your support. Please spread the word.
