Tornado Clean Up Information

For all who are interested or planning to come out and help, THANK YOU. Matt will be there onsite. We finally got called by a volunteer crew with trucks that are coming by tomorrow afternoon to help haul the trees out. If you are planning to come, and can come tomorrow AM and early afternoon, the more we can get cut before they come the more they can take. We will also need as much help on Sunday as possible to clean up after them, and continue clearing. We have heard that insurance will not cover any of the tree/yard damage and we are looking and thousands of dollars worth of tree removal & landscaping to fill the huge root ball holes, regrade our yard, fix our driveway, etc. In fact, our home owner's insurance will only pay to remove the part of the tree on the house... unbelievable! Any help we can get that can help us reduce those out of pocket bills would be GREATLY appreciated.

Address and phone contact in comments.

And a big thank you to everyone who has reached out and plans to come. I'm sorry that I won't be there to meet you and thank you personally. The girls are having a really hard time and I don't think I can leave them, right now.

If you need a break or change of scenery for you and the girls my door is always open whenever you need it. Praying for you all.

Wishing that I could come....I'm hoping that our family friend, Tad Agoglia, comes your way. He goes into areas with terrible natural disasters with his big equipment and removes it a volunteer.
And like mommy said, our doors are always open to you and the girls!!!
Hang in there, we're all repaying for you, wishing you peace amidst the clean up.

I am so glad that you are all physically okay. That said, I am so, so sorry about you losing all of the trees. I remember those beautiful mature trees were what drew you that home.

Oh your little girls. Yes, you need to be with them. How freaking horrifying and shocking it must be to look around your home and neighborhood and see all of this destruction.

Love and hugs to you all.
