In the early morning hours of December 29, 2016 our brothers, Dan & Marc, awoke to their apartment building on fire . They were living on the 3rd floor and the fire started on the 2nd - they only had time to grab the clothing on their backs while the smoke & fire crept up. 
We are so thankful that everyone made it out alive & safe, but unfortunately they have lost everything . Both of these guys would give you the shirt off their backs if you needed it . Please help with whatever you can so Dan & Marc can rebuild !

From Dan :
I've spent the past couple days thinking about how to write this thank you. There is a level gratitude that I want to express and wasn't exactly sure how to say it, and probably still will do a poor job. Regardless, I wanted to let everyone know how truly thankful I am for the family, friends, and union brother and sisters I have. It is more than the prayers and well wishes; more than money, clothing, and items that people have sent me. It's about what those things represent. I heard from people I haven't spoken to in years, and it's as if not a day has passed. My mother always said you can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. Well those who are my friends are just as close as my family so I guess I picked well. You all hold a special place in my heart. This was a difficult time, but your love and support has made this trying time so much easier to get through. I feel absolutely blessed for the friends I have, thank you so much!
Thank you to my sisters for setting up the Go fund me, and the love and support. Thank you to my brothers for all the help through the struggles. Thank you to my daughters for being my everything, and realizing what is truly important. Thank you to Jessica for being so helpful and understanding through this. A special thank you to my brother Marc for saving my life. I have come to realize if he was not there I would not here to write this. If you know Marc please give him a hug for me, I am in his debt.

You can never lose that what is truly important when you have great friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you all!

Marc & Dan were able to get back in yesterday for a bit & save clothing & shoes - everything else including furniture , bedding , and electronics are pretty much a loss. Thank you everyone for donating to help them out while they figure out the next steps , Dan & Marc are overwhelmed by the kindness that is being shown by people they know & those they don't .

Here is a recent post from Dan : I kept seeing this pop up on my Facebook. I saw my apartment and I thought it was an article about the fire, which I really wasn't ready to look at. I was shocked and I was moved to tears to see the support that my brother and I have. I am at a loss for words (which anyone who knows me knows how insane that is) at the good will and love that I have received during this time. Thank you everyone for this it truly is amazing. I love you all so very much! ❤️❤️❤️
