Tragedy Hits Home


Good Morning,
It is with heavy heart that I write this post today...
Yesterday there was a huge house fire at our family home and my son-in-law died in that horrific fire!


He was my eldest daughter's husband. I have spoken of her, and how the Kitties love her, Daun. She is devastated....
 I am numb with pain and grief as I am sure she and her daughter are along with the entire family. They lost everything in that fire. 
 His pet dog Ke-Ke somehow got out but kept running back in that house presumably trying to get to him. We couldn't restrain her she was relentless.  
  
 Willie wasn't a well man...he had a number of health issues and one of them was balance. His body was found in the Keeping Room and the fire started in the Kitchen. It was a tragic tragic loss.

  Needless to say, I will be away from the blog attending to arrangements and everything. They did not have insurance and we are trying to decide how to handle it all. 
Please pray that we find a way and can get through this loss... 

Gratefully,
Loretta
