Friends, Family and all,
First and foremost, thank you to all of you have shared your stories, love, phone-tree savvy and support. You are amazing and appreciated.
As many of you know by now via his Facebook page and the news, my Papa, Ernest Foss is the first identified victim of "campfire" wildfire. He was found deceased outside his home along with his beloved pup Bernice. My Stepbrother Andrew is still missing, though I know he was with my Dad, trying to get him out of harm's way. We are still hopeful, and not giving up searching, but the reality is grim.
I've set up this page to help raise funds for their services/expenses.
Please also consider donating to official, verified, related fundraising efforts such as Red-Cross.
I also ask that you would visit Dad's facebook page and view my request to share any pictures, videos, stories or KIND words. We've lost so many of our family photos, mementos, and his music recordings, including those of his rock-n-roll days. I know that there are more recordings out there, maybe even a video or two. I hear there's one of Rainy Daze on a roof in the Sunset District in San Francisco somewhere. SF Native to the core!
There are many articles and stories online right now about my Dad and Andrew, many of which I haven't seen yet. I spoke to many reporters and emphasized that we are few among the many. There are many families still waiting to hear news of their loved ones. There are many families who have lost everything. Please do what you can to help those in need.
Blessings to you and yours,
