My family has had a lot of obstacles to overcome. My family has lost their home to a fire on Valentine's day night. They lost everything, and did not have home insurance. They saved this house from being lost once before and on Valentine's day they had to watch everything burn in front of them. Their house was much more then just a house or home, it was a treasure chest of memories. When I was young I had lost my father to cancer, the same day we layed my father to rest I gained another family member. My uncle married Casey's mom and we became family. We grew up in that very house that burned down. My grandma and grandpa taught me everything about my dad and the meaning of family in that house. Then my grandma passed away. After that I spent as many weekends and days off from school going to spend time with my grandpa Joe. I loved him he was my hero. He was the best man. He taught me to cook, hunt, manners and kept my father's memory alive. When I was teenager he passed away. After that my grandparents house was up for auction. My uncle John and my cousin Casey saved the house from being auctioned off to someone else. They fixed it up and saved that piece of my families history doing so. My family all have their own memories and histories there and THEY saved it. And now years of them building new family memories there with children and grandchildren of their own they loose it all. Generations of memories gone. Their whole livelihoods gone. If any body deserves help they do. And they are to bull headed and proud to ask for it. So I'm asking for them. Please help them through this hardship. Anything helps. If I don't make goal oh well I'll keep trying. If I get them anything I'm grateful. Just please help me give back to people who always gave what they could.Here is a link to the story our local news station ran with pictures!

Well the time has come, the demolition is almost completely over. My family is now looking into permanent living situations now. A lot is still needed for them. They still owe all 3 fire departments that had to come to put out the fire. They need stuff to rebuild their lives. We still need help from anyone willing to help with a bennefit for them. I know it's been a while for an update, but late is better than not ever at all. Please anyone who can help donate or with starting a bennefit please get a hold of me! Thank you all for the love and support!
