the Lilac Fire Took It All

My parents, Jeff and Elizabeth Kellas and my sister, Kate and Ron Lovelady, Lost their homes!!! destroyed in the lilac fire on Thursday, December 7. It happened so fast because of the Santa Ana winds that they were unable to get anything out, no important documents , no memories and no clothing. We are trying to pull together all of our family energy and resources to make things better for them, and find them accommodations and clothing. Hopefully we can deal with housing and furnishings down the road. If you can help at all please do. This is a very difficult and humbling time for our family. We are all naturally givers and try to take care family and community, and now is our time of need. Thank you all for your support and God Bless!
