We had a fire Saturday Febuary 8, 2014. We lost everything. The only thing we have is the clothes on our backs. We lost all of our pets; 4 dogs and 6 cats. Nothing will ever make up for our puppies or the cats who we loved, they were like family, but we have to go on living. We are all morning them. Any donations we get will go towards rebuilding our house and our lives. Please help if you can, if you can't then please pass this on because someone you know might. As you read this on please remember that we have 4 teens and a baby girl, 9 month old Arabella. Also my parents who are both disabled and my Aunt Wilma who is disabled lived there with us. It was an old farm house built in the 50's, we had it rewired and plumbed, and had remodeled it extensively so that it had 5 bed rooms for everyone. We were planning to add on still but not till this summer. We were saving for that but it was not much because Stephen and I are both unemployed still. Our last jobs were in the Dallas area for Halloween. It's been hard but we were making it. This is a definite set back and we are honestly desperate for any help no matter how small it may seem. You never know how much of a blessing other peoples kindness and charity is until you truly need it. The small churches in the small towns around us have been a real blessing getting us clothes and jackets, and the red cross was amazing too. Still we have so much to rebuild, and furnisher and appliances to replace. Not to mentions tools to work with. We are trying to get any donations we can to help us. We did not have insurance. This was our second fire in less than 6 months. In November the house that we lived in before, which was still storing some of our stuff, caught on fire and was also a total loss. Because of that claim no insurance companies wanted to insure us. It had to be at least 6 months from our last claim. This weekends fire took every thing we had left. All we can do is hope that people will help us now that we really need it, and promise to pay it forward in the future. Please do all that you can to help our family recover from this tragedy.

Thank you.
