A Go Fund me account has been started to help a Westside Road resident devastated by a fire this week.
Flames burned down the home of Lynn Retzer on Louie’s Lane Wednesday night, with the cause under investigation.
Retzer’s son, Jeremy Graham, says his mother lost everything, and while she was insured, he says she needs some help.
“My name is Jeremy Thomas Graham and I am asking you to chip in to help my mother rebuild her life. As a widow of my late father and terrific mother of three, I feel as though this woman deserves a break. She has fire insurance so she is not without, although these matters can drag on for years with little or no progress.”
“Imagine driving home from work tomorrow to find everything you’ve ever owned, every picture you’ve ever taken of your child, every great memory with friends and family, ablaze,” adds Graham.
Graham asks for whatever help people can offer.
“Some of you have already given clothing, hospitality, and a shoulder to cry on, and for that I thank you.”
