House fire
« on: January 28, 2009, 04:22:09 PM »
My aunt and uncle lost their house in a fire last week.  Thankfully they are both well, but they lost everything except the clothes they were wearing and a few things they grabbed on the way out.  They are currently living with their daughter until they can find another home. 

Thank you for your prayers.  Lord have mercy.

Awww!  How sad.

Lord have mercy!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord have mercy!

As a former firefighter, my heart goes out to your aunt and uncle. At least no one was hurt physically; but they will need our prayers to get over the emotional scars, I'm sure.

Indeed.  They are in their late 70s now and had many memories and keepsakes in their house, including some of my deceased grandmother's letters, recipes, and photos.  Hopefully some of those can be copied from other family.  :(
