Thank You!

After the devastating fire on November 30 that destroyed our home and our two Siamese kittens, we would like to thank all the people who came to our aid. First, the wonderful fire fighters from Richmond, Bolton, Huntington and several other neighboring communities.

Second, our great neighbors and family especially [list of names], Richmond Home Supply and all the wonderful people in Richmond. We received clothing and food, dozens of calls, cards, money and prayers. We are in the process of rebuilding and are now living in a rented house in Richmond village.

We were both born and raised in Richmond and appreciate the kindness and generosity of all of the great people who live here.
