    Sorry for all your losses, I’m wondering if there is a chance for you people to rebuild hoping the buildings and hoping it was all insured . Also I miss watching your show it was my escape from my every day reality , I sometimes felt like I was right there amongst you. I lived my younger days on a farm with no running hot water and an out house through the winters in 35 below o. Northern Alberta, Canada so I can relate somewhat to your pioneering. I hope Mom and Dad are doing well , all that smoke must have been harder on them on top of the stress. I especially like your family gatherings I can really feel the family ties , I envy you for that. If we could all be like that the world would be a much better place. God Bless you all.
