Sam and Robin tragically lost their home of 34 years and all of their possessions to a devastating fire Saturday night (12/8/18). Incredibly and thankfully everyone got out safely with no physical injuries. Sadly two cherished pets were lost. Obviously  the family will be traumatized for a long time to come.  Adding to the heartbreak is that Sam and Robin’s daughter Kayla, her husband James and their two beautiful children Lena (3) and J.P. /Jay (1)  have been living with Sam and Robin for the past few months as they have been house hunting and they too lost everything except the clothing on their backs. This family’s needs are incredibly significant. Although they certainly do have insurance, I can speak first hand that insurance does not cover all the various needed expenses that will arise that are needed to help the family to regain a sense of normalcy. This incredibly wonderful and deserving family of six is in need of our/your help. Please consider chipping in any amount that you are comfortable with. For those wishing to make a non monetary donation an Amazon wish list has been created. (See the link below). Sam and Robin thank you in advance from the bottom of their hearts.
