X's son Mike and his family lost everything in a fire last night. The family and their dogs are safe, but they've been left with nothing.

Sorry to read about the total loss but awesome to read that all are safe. Never easy to rebuild. We had to do it 5 years ago through water damage. We were in Aruba and we had pipes burst and water ran for 2 days from the second floor before it was shut down. Ceilings, walls and furniture ruined. It was bad but not as bad as fire destruction. Just be strong and thankful nobody was hurt and rebuild. Not easy but it can be done.
Praying for strength for the family.
