    On behalf of the family, we are forever grateful to the men and women who were responding to the fire, many of which as we understand, are volunteers. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for risking your lives and being there on one of the worst days of their lives. Our hearts are overwhelmed by the outpouring of concern, kindness and support from neighbors and the community. The genuine caring of neighbors among this community along Augusta is really something rare and special that the family truly appreciates.
