Tommy Lost EVERYTHING in the Fire

About three years ago, I walked away from a bad relationship in Oregon,  and decided to start over in Houston. When  I moved here, I did not know anybody, did not like my job very much, and I was just struggling all around.  Eventually, I worked up the courage to join a game at Third Coast Volleyball Club, -and that is the day I met Tommy and Bo.  
Tommy would become my closest friend in Houston.  He took me under his wing,  and introduced me to lots of people, asked me to join his volleyball team, and eventually invited me to join his bowling league.    When I Go out of town, Tommy  always volunteers to help care for my 100 pound boxer, Brutus.  Bo tolerates this  

 Earlier this year during the hurricane, three men approached me at a gas station and robbed me about a day before my birthday.  Tommy and Bo offered emotional support, and then came over and spent a Saturday afternoon changing my locks for me, and even taught me how to do it as he went. Tommy is a true gentleman and a good friend,  which is rare these days.  There are not enough words to express my gratitude towards Tommy and Bo. 

 Earlier this year Tommy learned that his house was being sold, so he had to move. After a long search, he found the perfect house with a huge backyard for Bo. Though, I guess the new home was not quite perfect, because an electrical fire in the kitchen last week claimed the house with everything they owned in it.

 I am so grateful Tommy and Bo got out safely!  Things can be replaced, nothing can replace these 2 beautiful souls.  ...  that said, things cost a lot of money, and our friends did not have an insurance policy to help replace their things.
If I could fix this myself, I would.  I am starting this Bo-fund-Me  so that anyone who  is able to contribute to their recovery can.   I  know there are so many people out there who have a similar story to mine about how Tommy and Bo have touched their lives.
