My son Ken and his wife Diane Cahill along with their teenage son, just received word that they lost their home in the Butte fire.  They evacuated a week ago and spent this last week at Angel's Camp and with friends.  The home they were renting was completely destroyed and did not have renter's insurance. They are in need of monetary help from friends and family to start rebuilding their lives. I know giving of money is hard on everyone, but it will be received with love and great humility.  Please find it in your hearts to share even the smallest amount.  They now need all of the basic necessities we all take for granted.

Thank-you and hugs to all,
Marilyn Cardwell (heartbroken mama)

Ken and Diane are doing ok. We took some things down to them. The house they are renting is quite comfortable and in the pines at 4000 ft. So the new wood stove being installed will be nice to have. The owners took out the 1970's orange stove and refrig. and put in new. They too are survivors. Again, thank you all for the love and support.
