Our friend Adrienne set up a GoFundMe page for LindaG (Linda Gremillion of Lecompte, Louisiana).

Go Fund Me link for LindaG 

Our wonderful blogger buddy, LindaG , lost her home, and pretty much lost everything but their lives, when a tornado ripped through Rapides Parish, Louisiana on the evening of Wednesday, April 22.

She is a woman of great faith and gentleness and considers herself lucky since at least 7 people lost their lives as the storm blew through Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.

Their charming farm house was about 150 or more years old so no one would insure it and now it’s a total wreck. Linda and her husband were restoring the house before the tornado struck.

Her son escaped being buried under a brick wall and roofing when he luckily left his room for a drink of water.

LindaG and her husband are both US Air Force veterans who served our country with distinction.  Let’s show our support by helping them in their time of need.

Thank you on behalf of Linda G.

  1. Thanks for setting this up and letting us know, guys!

    “She is a woman of great faith ”
    I’m thinking more than luck was involved 🙂

  3. Thanks to hubby the title was changed from hurricane to tornado. Duh!

    The response is already wonderful it being Sat and all.

    Thanks, LL – you’re a gem (and cute too)

  4. I just checked the site and it’s already nearly 20% of the goal. I’ll check back in a week or so and perhaps give a bit more if needed.

  5. The response shows the true heart of America…thx LL for the tip off. If more is needed at months end, more will be given…paying it forward in humble gratitude for their service to our country.

    Prayers for LindaG and family that God gives them strength and a clear path forward…clearly they are not alone in this.

  6. God bless them please and their loved ones too.
    It is difficult to fully appreciate the deepness of the loss when your abode is destroyed without having experienced it. A unique violation of continuity and refuge.
    Our house burnt to a crisp when I was 11, everything was lost but was in the carriage houses and barns. It certainly is a revelation, providence too, makes you grow up fast, to not take the world for granted. You never know ahead of time, but nothings so bad it ain’t good for something better. I hope Linda and her’s become stronger and wiser from it. Good folks prevail.
    Here too in WV its next to impossible to obtain home insurance without a mortgage on the real estate.
    Have Faith & Pray, and lots of fire extinguishers.

    • Maybe the key is to take out a small mortgage so you can be covered against loss? I’ve never owned a home outright, so I’ve never faced that situation.

  7. I donated because this is a woman whom you, Brig, and LSP love, and y’all have given so much to me over the years! Bloggers unite. 🙂
