Thankful Tuesday

Home Builder with Sitterle Homes



Thank you so much for all the texts, call and Facebook messages. As the news has stated this was an epic disaster. I have never seen so much devastion in my life. I am so grateful that all of our family came through this unharmed. We evacuated due to the uncertainity of the Barker Reservoirs being released as we live upstream. As many of you know my father has to get dialysis. It was very challenging to get him to a center on Monday. Tuesday we had the chance to evacuate and we took it. I am very proud of my two boys they have volunteered. My youngest volunteered at shelter's and yesterday he flew to Austin ( he is a pilot) a picked up supplies to bring back and my oldest volunteered at the George Brown convention center. My oldest son and his friend drove around and found a family needing help to muck their home. They lost everything as many did, he returned yesterday and I donated a HEB gift card for food and the man cried. We will be checking on this family and helping them as we can.

The support that Houston has received from fellow Texans, the country and the world is over whelming. Maybe we can take this example and realize there is so much good in this world.

Thanks again for your support and please donate or help in whatever way you can this will be a long healing process but we are HOUSTON STRONG!


The top picture is helicopters down the street from my home looking for people, and the 2nd one was taken by my oldest son as the rain finally stopped!

So happy you, Bob and the family are ok. It is amazing what happen and now another one on the way. As I said before, the news here showed Cinco Ranch areas with 2-3 feet of water. I will call in a few weeks after you hopefully obtain some normalcy again. cheers cvc

I am so glad to hear that you and your family are safe and sound.  I can't even imagine the destruction that occurred there.

Quickly, professionally and with a little fun!

It is not even possible to imagine going through this.  It is really great to hear the positive stories about what people have gone through that are surrounded by the tragic events but come through with no damage and how that effects their lives.  We are experiencing really destructive forest fires that are very close to Portland.  It is scary and hardbreaking.

Good news is always welcome, but this is going to be a really long recovery. Hoping Florida doesn't end up the same.

So nice to hear from you and know all is well. Although, we knew you were okay through various comments and posts throughout the Rain. Isn't it grand to be loved? We have been told monetary donations to the Red Cross is the best way to help. Hugs to you and your family. D
