"I want to thank everyone who is helping us in this terrible time.we are astounded by the love and help being directed our way.Help is coming from every angle.Friends,family and strangers are going above and beyond to assist us as we have lost everything.I want to thank my father in law for giving his life to try to rescue Melissa',myself, and Chloe and Megan in the fire.Our giant dog Harley made enough noise from ramming his way through the house to wake up Mike and Laura.With a house full of blinding smoke and Blistering Heat Mike was unable to know if it day or night.After running up the back stairs with Laura behind him,she went out at the back door to get help while he never left the building by continuing up the stairs into the actual fire itself to make sure we were safe.He was found in the bathroom across from our bedroom with Harley in the hallway with him.I had the privilege of living with him since 1998.As anyone who knows him he was a very intense person with a memory recall of sports trivia that would rival a supercomputer.Mike always let you know where he stood but always had the best interest of his family at heart.As I have two daughters it became very clear to me that by giving me his only daughters hand in marriage he truly loved and trusted me.He truly loved Laura and Melissa and Mike ,Angela and his grandkids.We have a large hole in our hearts as he is no longer with us.Harley ,my large black 165 monster of a Puppy is a true hero as he alerted them to the danger woke Mike and Laura who was able to escape and then died as he searched for us.We will forever be grateful for this display of selfless love.John 15:13 greater love hath no man that he lay down his life for another. #MikeandHarleyselfless,
#MikeandHarleyheros"

So very sorry for such a horrific loss. Does the family have a place to stay? Was the house insured?

Words cannot express how unbelievably loved, blessed, and humbled we are by this incredible outpouring of love and generosity. Thank you so much. Those words seem so small, but know we appreciate this more than you'll ever know...and may you never find out!
