Created December 5, 2017
Early this morning our parents lost their home in the tragic Thomas fire. We are so fortunate our family is safe,  but unfortunately they lost absolutely everything. All they were able to save were their 3 pets. Absolutely anything helps as we try to make sense of this and rebuild. Even if a donation is not possible, sharing this story would be deeply appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read and prayers to all affected by this terrible diaster.

Hello everyone!

2017 is over now. Here we are in 2018. A year of hope. A year of love. A year of growth and rebuilding.
After 35 years of marriage, we start this year as newlyweds. Starting fresh with love and commitment. We now have “BTF” (before the fire) and “ATF” (after the fire) as a part of our history together. We may have lost everything we had in the fire, but we refuse to lose us. Who we are.
As we start to plan and rebuild our future, our home, we will never forget it is because of all of you. “BTF” we never experienced such devastation but we also never experienced so much love. So there is the gift. This love lifted us up and kept us going and will continue to do so. Forever grateful we are.

We wish you all peace, love, laughter and great music always.

To new beginnings!

-Tom and Cindy

Below is a letter from Tom and Cindy to everyone who has shown love and support in these last dew weeks..

We have been trying to to find the right words to convey to all of you our overwhelming gratitude for your kindness. We are still not sure we have, but here we go..
The last two weeks have been a rollercoaster of emotions: disbelief, fear, sadness, shock, grief, thankfulness, love, sorrow,determination.
But in the end, the most we feel is overwhelming gratefulness and love for all of you. Friends. Strangers. You have shown us the absolute best of human kindness. Reaching out to us in a time where we all face challenges in our lives whether affected by the Thomas Fire or not. To look beyond ourselves to help others is genuine love for neighbor.
Our world is filled with chaos right now but because of your kindness and generosity, we know we will be okay. We will once again find our soft place to land, our home. A home is built on love, family, friends, laughter, babies running everywhere! We will find our strength again. Because of you. We know we have a long way to go, but rebuild we will, because us Svensons are a strong, determined, "don't tell me I can't" kind of family.
Our hearts are full with all the outpouring of love on our behalf. Please know your kindness will not be forgotten.
Of course we are most thankful for our children, so dear to us. They fill our hearts everyday: Ashlee, Emily and Zachary. Our precious grandchildren we have been blessed with: Zoee Blu, Memphis Dean, Atticus James, Piper Ray and our newest sweet Clover Emilee.
We are thank our brave firefighter son-in-laws, Jake and Marcus. So happy they are safe. Cheyenne, our son's beautiful wife who has opened her home to us.
Our faith in Jehovah God who brings us comfort. 2 Cor,1:3,4 Let us always remember to hold those we love a little bit closer.
Hurray to all of you who have shown us that "love never fails".

To new beginnings,
Tom and Cindy
