Their house was on fire!

Many have asked how to help, and what they can do. So here's what we can do. As many of you know, my parents, Rose and James Simola's house caught fire last Friday. The house is still standing, but is unlivable. There is a big hole in the floor, wall damage, smoke damage throughout and the electricity and water cannot be turned back on. There is no insurance, we have all been there and know the feeling. Things get tight and certain things just can't be paid at the moment and the house insurance didn't make the cut, you don't think that your home will catch fire, "that won't happen to me" just happened. Everyone is safe and all animals were rescued just in time, so beyond blessed is an understatement. But, at the moment my parents are staying in an RV, clothes, necessities, daily items you just don't think about all had to be replaced. They will be saving up now to figure out their next move, so this is how you can all help, along with your prayers and well wishes! It's all appreciated!!! Friends and family came to the rescue just like friends and family do and we couldn't be more grateful to all of you!!! Thank you in advance from all of us!!!
