TubbsFire Restart - Lost Everything

My name is Melita Combs, my fiance is Joshua Stefanini, and my sister is Noella Wroten-Kennedy and we have lost our entire home and all of our belongings from the fire... We are from Santa Rosa, CA.  Our home was in the Coffey Park Neighborhood that has been completedly burned down by the Tubbs Fire.  The money raised will help us with replacing items lost (i.e. basic needs like clothing, toiletries, eventually furniture etc), in addition we will use the funds to help with moving costs and to find a new place to live...

There are no words. Which makes this difficult to write. My fiance, sister and I,  like many other evacuated around 2am this last morning not thinking we would never return home.  Several hours later we have discovered that our ENTIRE home has burnt to the ground.  Due to evacuating so quickly we did not have a lot of time to grab belongings and have lost literally everything.  Our hearts are broken for our city community which is shattered. Please if you can anything and everything is appreaciated.
