Mom learned of a woman who recently lost her husband and 4 kitties in a house fire on Christmas Eve. While mom doesn't know this person she knows of her through a Facebook group she participates in called Cat Addicts Anonymous. Mom remembers how much support we got after our fire and wanted to help. While mom doesn't have a lot to give she still felt it was important to pay it forward. Mom knows she can never repay all the people who helped us (including complete strangers!) but she thought paying it forward would be a good way to thank all those that helped us!
The devastating fire happened in Decatur Illinois on the night of Christmas Eve. The story can be read here: http://www.foxillinois.com/news/features/top-swordtories/stories/decatur-man-dies-tuesday-night-fire-2385.shtml. Linda Henderson lost her husband William in the fire. The funeral for William is being held today. Perhaps pals could include Linda in #pawcircle today?
There is a GoFundme account set up for Linda here: http://www.gofundme.com/jjlmcc. If you feel compelled to help please do. It looks like she doesn't have a lot of support. Even a little bit might be a big help to her. If nothing else, say a prayer for her that she is able to remain strong during such a difficult time in her life.
Mom, Mia and I want to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year!
