In the evening hours of Feb 5, my sister’s family and home were devastated by a house fire. My sister’s husband, a beloved father and grandfather lost his life from injuries sustained while helping family members escape the fire. He died at the hospital shortly thereafter. Household contents, my sister and two grandsons’ personal belongings were also lost. One grandson is 16 and currently a sophomore in high school, the other grandson is 8 and is on the autism spectrum with special needs.
Due to previous medical concerns, they did not have adequate coverage/protection from a disaster such as this. Unfortunately, they don’t have the funds necessary to get back on their feet, back to school, and on with their lives.
On behalf of the Block Family, of Kansas City, MO, their family and friends ask for any assistance you might be able to provide. We and they will appreciate and be grateful for all the help they receive.
