So here it goes.... I don't normally do these kinds of things, but my Aunt Kitty and Uncle Tim are some of the most kind and giving people you will ever meet. If you have ever been lucky enough to meet them, or know them, you know how extremely special they are. They touch people's hearts in a way that truly can not  be described in words.
My Aunt Kitty  and Uncle Tim moved to Islamorada 5 years ago, after my uncle had battled Hodgkin's Lymphoma and won. They sold most of what they had, packed up the rest, and left North Carolina for a fresh start. They bought a mobile home on the beach and found that they had an amazing knack for creating beautiful pieces of art from reclaimed lobster traps and driftwood.

This past week their lives were ripped out from under them. If you have seen any news stories about Hurricane Irma and Islamorada, all the pictures of the mobile home park, the Seabreeze, is where their home use to be. They lost everything besides what they could load in their vehicles before evacuating. They are still uncertain if they have lost everything in their shop, The Fat Iguana Artwerx, because there is too much muck and debris blocking it.
I am asking my friends, and friends of friends to please donate any little amount you can. Anything that can help take the burden off just a little as they start to rebuild their lives over once again. We love you so much Kitty and Tim Taylor and know that even through the darkest days you both bring so much light to this world!!
