The Otto Family

Early Sunday morning my sister and her family were awoken to pouding on their door.  Their dear, dear friend (and a hero in my opinion) had raced to their house and towards the fire, to tell them they needed to evacuate.  Unable to even put a shirt on her back or shoes on her children's feet the family fled.  They survived and for that we are beyond grateful.  

Their home, however, was not so lucky.  They lost everything.  Not a single family picture survived.  So, so much that we can never replace.  But my sister is strong, they will rebuild.  I have had several requests to start this page and so as uncomfortable as it makes my sister, she reluctantly agreed. Cameron is the most generous person I know, and unfortuantely, she now needs to be on the receiving end.  Uncomfortable or not, they need help and prayers.

If you would like to donate to get them through this devestating time please feel free to do so.  The money will go directly to her and towards reclothing their children, restocking their kitchen/bathroom/living room, everything it takes to run a home with two children in tow.  If you are only able to leave words of encouragement, those are just as needed and appreciated.
