Thank you, first responders and community members

A special thanks to the people we know and the people we have never met that fought off the fire, protecting our home as if it was their own.

On behalf of myself, my wife Annelie and family, we would like to personally thank all of who sacrificed their time and safety to help save our family home and animals.

A special thanks to the people we know and the people we have never met that fought off the fire, protecting our home as if it was their own.

My family is very fortunate to still be on the same farm, in a caring community, since 1972.
