Watching and listening to all the news about the California fires sure sends chills down my spine, but when it hits close to home, it’s a heart wrenching feeling that hits different. Imagine being faced by a tragedy when you least expect it, and coming to terms with the uncertainty of everything. On Wednesday August 19th at 2:45 am our cousins Ryan and JJ Montano were forced to evacuate their home in Vacaville due to the LNU fires. Ryan, JJ and their two children (Aliyah 10, and Miguel 8, have lost their home and all their belongings.
Although our family is more than grateful for their health and safety, we cannot even begin to understand the amount of stress and emotional burden this has caused them. Ryan Montano, a persistent, dedicated, and diligent worker who has made great strides to create something for himself, is now forced to rebuild a new life for his family. Never in their wildest dreams did they expect to be in this situation, and we as family are deeply overwhelmed by the circumstances they are in. We ask that you join our family in solidarity to pray for Ryan and his family and bring peace, unity, and love to their hearts. We would greatly appreciate any donation, and hope that this money can bring immediate relief.
