Sells family hurricane relief

My dear friends/family, Mr. & Mrs. Sells, their children and grandchildren have been terribly effected by hurricane Harvey. They live outside of Beaumont in Silsbee TX , they had to evacuate very quickly yesterday morning.

They have lost everything, their entire home, cars, RV, tractor, trailers and horses. Their entire home is nearly covered in water. They were luckily enough to get out safely but had to leave everything behind.

The Sells will not be able to return to their home probably for several weeks until the water drains, at that point when it's safe they can start working on rebuilding their lives and home. Everything will have to be torn down and rebuilt. I can not even imagine the work ahead of them.

The Sells family, it's hard to even describe them in words. The most loving and caring family I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. They have worked so hard their entire lives for everything they have. Mr. Sells served in the navy for 30+ years and is still working and Mrs. Sells is a nurse and has been for 35 years. They will be living in a hotel until their home can be rebuilt.

Foremost, Wilbur and Sarah are thankful for your prayers. If that is what you can offer them, you are offering the most valuable help they could possibly get. If you are able to help in a material way, the most impactful thing you can do is financially contribute to their recovery journey

Thank you for your support and prayers. Wilbur and Sarah appreciated them more than you could ever know.

I apologize for lack of photos, the few photos we do have of their home were taken from a neighbors boat who had stayed behind and didn't evacuate. This is all they have for now.
