Send Love to Susan. Our friend Susan needs our help! On Saturday, May 3, Susan Lynn was the victim of a disastrous apartment fire.  Luckily Susan and Tahlea were not present when it happened so there is no way to know for sure how the fire started.  For may days prior to the fire, Susan had been telling the building mngmt that it was sometimes impossible to turn the stove off all the way.  On further inspection, the journeymen found that the electrical work was against code.  The blaze started when her roommates daughter was playing babysitter with her younger sister and some other little friends (with her mom's help) while Susan and Thalea were out. Possibly, the fire started when her roommate's daughter set a plastic tray across part of the stove. Due to a clause in her lease, Susan is unable to recoup the debt of the renovation from her building’s insurance policy. Susan and Tahlea are deeply attached to this space. They have a studio in the same building where they both paint and build things, and they're determined to stay in their home. Through the help of generous friends and family, plus her own hard work and knack for working on a shoestring budget, Susan is slowly putting their home back together. However, this is a sizable project, and her debts are quickly mounting. Many people have expressed a desire to help. If we all give a little it could mean a lot to Susan and Tahlea!
