The Montalbano’s awoke today in a panic. Their home filling with fire and smoke. Luckily, Lynda was able to wake everyone and get them out of the house quickly. A few more minutes and this may have been a much different story.

Their house on Hayes Drive was home to Lynda and Mike Montalbano, their pregnant daughter Brittany, her husband Joe, and their daughter Kiara. As well as Lynda and Mike’s daugher Gianna, son Mike, Mike’s fiancé Jessica, and their son Jagger.

Lynda and Mike are two parents who endlessly go above and beyond for their children and their families. They do all within their means to support and cherish the world that the two have built around them.

Thank God, all of the people and animals of the home are safe. But, unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the house that they built and have lived in for so many years.  The house where these kids grew up—where their kids are growing up.

A fire that started in the backyard shed rapidly spread to the structure, taking it down from the outside in. There was no time for the family to gather much more than a few personal belongings before quickly exiting to the chilly February morning. 

It it is unimaginable, to think about the heartbreak and pain that the family is suffering at this time. No amount of condolences or prayers will return the cherished valuables, possessions, photos, memories, and much more that is lost in a terrible tragedy.

Although we cannot return those precious moments, we can help support the Montalbano Family with our monetary donations. One can only imagine how much will be required to rebuild a roof above their heads, and restore their way of life. 

Thank you to everyone who can offer their help  and support to our cousins during this time. It is very much appreciated.


Sincerely,

Nick Bissel and Family
