Thank you all for the support!!! The only real place for him to shop, is a Walmart near his house. So thats why I sugggested a card from them. There isnt any other place for him to go. If you need the address in which to send the cards, PM me, or Babytruck. Thanks again everyone!

I think that made sense....Im not bashing your gift card idea by any means babytruck

No worries!! Thanks for the ideas! It's just that Jason has no computer access and Chris is kind of busy and his mind is all up in a tizzy. The less for him to do the better. He's not even sleeping or eating right....

Which ever works best for everyone. Every little bit helps no matter what form.

But I want to say that everyone here is so awesome, pulling through here. Thank you sooo much.

Thanks man! As of now, I think this is about the best way to help. Depending on when I can get up there to asses all teh damage, and make a rebuilding plan, I might need to get a small "crew" toghether to build a new place. But thats not for a few days or so. And then we need to see how we can get materials, and such.

Be careful of the dirt. With the chemicals that burned in the shed, hopefully it's not toxic.

Yeah. The construction company that said they are helping with clean up also said they are going to test the dirt. We also have a guy that lives about 1/4 mile away who said he will give whatever dirt he has on his property to rebuild the grounds for his home. We cant address any of that yet, until the land gets clerared. As of now, I have a date of next weekend to meet with the local Fire Dept., My Parents, and some construction folks to asses all the damage, and work on a rebuild plan. This is gonna be a long road.



FWIW, My Mom and Dad have been made aware of what you all are doing for my Brother, and they can not belive it! There is no way for us to show or express how thankfull we are. My Mom and Dad, as am I, are left speechless. The support you all have given is clearly letting us know that there is a light at the end of this ordeal, and things may actually end up OK!!
