Every house around this house burnt down. This house was totally untouched by the fire. See the picture below.
This was a very humbling experience to see these homes. We take so much for granted. It is crazy how fast it can all be taken away. I had the honor of meeting one of the families that lost their home during the fire. They go to church with Cindy and Eric. The church family hosted a "pounding" party. Everyone was encouraged to bring a pound of something to stock the kitchen. I thought that was a neat idea. Cindy has also started a website for the families who lost a home in the fires. It is www.rebuildrb.com. The donations collected go strait to the families.
