This snapshot is my 12 year old grandson Joshua, standing where his home once stood. His home near Mannford Oklahoma where he lived with his paternal grandparents burned to the ground on 8/3/12 in a wildfire. Joshua grew up there with his Dad Joe, who died unexpectedly early in 2011. Josh stayed on to attend Olive School and help his Grandma care for Grandpa, who has advanced Parkinsons Disease and Alzheimers. Thankfully, Josh was with my daughter Lara (his mom), visiting his big brother Dustin in southern Oklahoma this weekend, and his Grandma and Grandpa were able to escape to safety. Josh’s uncle and his family also lost their home on the same acreage, but they too were unharmed. We are profoundly grateful that everyone is safe, but the family has lost everything they own, and the Grandparents’ home was not insured. Anyone who wishes to help Josh and his grandparents, Neomia and Alden David, may contribute here. Any amount, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated. I will personally oversee the management of funds to help them rebuild. We are extraordinarily grateful for your caring thoughts and heartfelt prayers for Josh and his Grandparents and our entire extended family.
