Update from July York Manor Road Dwelling Fire
Dear Jacksonville Volunteer Fire Company,
Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything. Words can not adequately express our (and our families') gratitude. My husband, daughter and I are just getting back on our feet after the July fire. We are working on cleaning up and rebuilding after what could have been an unspeakable tragedy. I am sure you hear this a lot, but once you realize how lucky you are that "everyone is OK", you have to stop thinking about what might have happened if circumstances had been, even slightly, different...
We would like to thank you all for your courage, and the valiant effort in which you saved our home. We have always been supporters of our local firemen and women, but this experience has shown us, firsthand, what a truly special group of heros live in our community.
Our daughter will be celebrating her birthday this weekend. Thanks to you, we will ALL be celebrating together. In lieu of gifts we have asked friends and family to donate to JVFC, and will forever keep you and YOUR families in our thoughts and prayers.
Your grateful neighbors,
Annie, Chip, Virginia and Lucy-dog
