One couple recently told me that their parents told them to visit the gallery and they live up the hill on Atlas Peak. They had never been in and they were one of the lucky ones whose house did not burn last year while every house around them did. They were so grateful to come through our door and find a place in the area where they felt at ease and comfortable.
It is stories like this that I am honored to hear about truly every day. So in this New Year as we all begin again I am dedicated to a new cause: the Victims of the Butte County Fire.
I cannot even imagine what they are going through with no home this Holiday Season. We are all fortunate to have so much and my prayer is that everyone sitting at their Holiday table will send loving thoughts to all the families in Butte County.
