Heroes emerge from the ashes

Now that the ash from the Dog Bar fire has settled, we would like thank those who stopped to help us, Zeno and Erin Acton, Steve and Nick Piziali, and Larry and Lisa Battenfeld.

Friends and family, who prayed, called, and stopped by; it’s nice to know you are there for us.

To all the responders and the incredibly brave firefighters who stayed through it all and told my husband, “We got this, when you get back, your house will still here,” and it was! And ultimately to the divine universe for answering our prayers.

Thank you.

The Silva family
