Around 6:30 am on 04/13/17 I received a phone call from my mom, youngest sister, and stepdad informing me that their house caught fire and they have lost everything. My sisters dog was taken by the fire and smoke, all of their belongings, absolutely everything. The cause of the fire is unknown but they barely made it out from all of the smoke inhalation. The only thing they have are the clothes on their backs. They do not have renters insurance. They lost the place that they called home. I do not even know where to begin to help them but I am hoping that this can at least be a start. If you are able to help, you have no idea how greatly it would be appreciated. If you cannot, please share this like crazy and get word out.

Today my mom and stepdad went back to their home to see what other items could be salvaged from the fire. My stepdad went to reach under his and my moms bed and he found my sisters dog. I feel so bad for my sister and I wish I could take away her pain of losing her dog but at least she knows that she isn't out there running around scared and alone. My mom thinks she knew something was wrong that morning and was trying to protect herself from harm, but it didn't end well for her. I just thought I would let everyone who was worried and praying for my sisters dog should know that she was found but definitely not the way we were hoping.

My family is in better spirits today and have been able to recover a few odds and ends from the rubble of their home. They may have their living situation figured out even if only temporary. We are all so grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers, thoughts, kind words, donations whether it has been money donations or clothing and other miscellaneous items from so many different people. My family is on the path to recovering and hopefully a better future ahead in getting their lives back on track and being able to move on from this tragedy. I thank everyone for everything you have done or said to help my family. Please continue to pray and share this link to anyone you can think of. I very much appreciate it!
