Fallen victim to Fire

On November 11 2007 my sister Lorrie and her family were involved in a terrible house fire. Luckily the fire took place during the day when everyone was away. This fire destroyed the entire mobile home and many other irreplaceable items within. The family was devastated, distort, left with no hope, and struggling to make fast decisions regarding the situation. I am witting this letter to ask for assistance in building a new house for this family.

You may ask why should you help with this. People everyday battle fires and loose everything, yet are still able to overcome the circumstances. Well, this family is unique. The mom and dad both work to support nine (9) children. Three of the children are biologically theirs, two of the children are adopted, and four of the children are from irresponsible family members. My sister is the most caring person I have ever met. All of the children are exceptionally care for. They keep the children in after school activities such as football and cheerleading. This family has been a valued member of society. The children are all well mannered and respectful.

This catastrophe has drawn the family together and tighter than ever. I am asking for assistance in building them a new house. A house of love and kindness and friendship. This family has lost everything, all there memories, irreplaceable documents, and keepsakes. Lets give back to a family that so deserves.
