Motley crews food truck explosion
Marty loved the food industry and his dream was to open up a restaurant. He came up with a food truck idea and motley crews heavy metal grill was born.
He had just announced that he was opening a resturant called heavy metal grill. On March 6th at 11pm the food truck, motley crews heavy metal grill, exploded in the driveway of their home in Lakeville mn. Marty's only child Samantha (age 12) was home alone at the time, she was safe in her bedroom downstairs but ran out of the house terrified for her life. As she left the house she realized the entire truck had exploded and a neighbor ran out and carried her to his home. Sam suffered only stress and nausia.
The entire food truck is gone, vehicles are in shambles, and their home is in dire need of repairs now. They are not even sure if they can return to the home anytime soon. They will not be able to stay in their home since it is not safe and it is cold in Minnesota and they have no windows.
I am reaching out now and asking that we support this family because they supported me and took me in. I wouldn't be the amazing person I am today with out Marty.
Marty is a single father doing his best to raise her on his own, he now has no income and no job to pay the bills.
In the blink of an eye Marty lost everything he had worked his entire life for. His business he built on his own, his job, and his home that Samantha has lived in since she was born.
It is still very surreal for all of us that this is even happening.
Help with anything you can spare as I am trying to pay it forward to a man who deserves this more than anyone I have ever met in my life. Even if you cannot donate please just share their story.

Again thank you to everyone who donated ever just 5.00 because it is all helping out the Richie family.
God bless and we hope to see you all at heavy metal grill in downtown Lakeville, opening this June!!
Update... Lisa and I are staying in a hotel and Rocki was kind enough to let Sam stay with her until we get a more permanent place to stay. The dogs are all messed up from going back and forth from the hotel and the house all day long.
We read all your posts in-between meetings to keep some sense of normalcy in our lives. Your kind words, love and support has been overwhelming.
By nature, giving is what makes me happy. Making sandwiches for all of you and hearing how much you enjoyed them is my nirvana. I try not to look at the GoFundMe account because it turns me into an emotional wreck. I also want to thank each and everyone of you who donated your hard earned money to help Lisa, Sam and Myself. It means more than you will ever know.
I will update again when I get a chance. From The Crew to all of you Thank You for everything.
After I finished reading the comments Marty smiled humbly and said "people are amazing".

Do they not have insurance on the food truck and house? Sorry to hear of their loss.
We live nearbya few blocks away and have extra room. If you need somewhere to stay, please know you are both welcome here! I don't know if you have pets, but we'd be happy to have them stay as well as long as needed until you guys are settled back home. We're just so glad you're both safe!
Are there any handymen, or construction crews that can assist with their home?
