Many people continue to be without power as a result of Hurricane Irma. But I came to learn that one of my friends and former colleagues, Chris Deacon, lost much, much more this weekend.
In short: He lost everything he possessed, including his home and his car.
He and his family, wife Jessica and daughter Lilly, had just moved to Gainesville, FL and were in the process of unpacking boxes in their new home when the hurricane hit.
Thanks to the help of their neighbors, they were able to escape with their lives.
Below are some photos of the devastation.
Their house is destroyed. They are now without a vehicle. Everything of value has been consumed by the resulting flood.
I’m making this post to urge readers to help me help the Deacons.
You can help by making a donation to help the Deacon family get back on their feet again. All funds will go directly to the family, to help them rebuild and recover from this terrible ordeal.
