Amelia & John McGough send thanks for help following fire
Though the family has had tremendous help from a caring community following the fire which destroyed their house while they were away, there are still items the family still needs, Amelia McGough writes. Next earlier story on the fire: Amelia McGough sends thank you to AC Fire Dept., others

By Amelia McGough
Looking for someone to help with some simple construction inside (a wall to separate the kitchen), a very short wall to separate the laundry/bathroom.
Someone to connect the washing machine (washer box)
Someone to do a little drywall repair - (Adam, I have lost your phone number)
Short list of needed items:
An account has been requested to be opened for donations - we chose WoodForest Bank in Walmart as it seemed to be the most convenient. The account is under Amelia McGough; John was too sick to go to the bank. If you can help even a little it would be deeply appreciated. Temporary living expenses, supplies, gas, everything is quickly eating away at what funds would have supported us comfortably under normal circumstances.
Many have asked not to be mentioned for their help but the generous work of the Pyles companies in providing us with a handicapped accessible driveway and concrete pad to get John safely in/out of the apartment is something I am not willing to keep quiet. We've been fighting with that unlevel hill since we bought the place in '09; I fell twice myself in years past. Thank you all but especially Danny, TW, Bradley, David and Jason. We would also like to thank Dan Franklin for helping one of our kids with a job.
Our needs have been lessened and we have been encouraged by the wonderful people at Trinity Methodist and 3Trees Church who have helped with accomodations, food, and money for meals and gas as well as connecting us with service providers, Sugarfoot Farms (Peg and Keith) who have been caring for our service dogs and donated some much needed items. Betty's, Hardees, and Acapulco Grill have all donated meals to the family and we thank you. Not having a working kitchen is a genuine irritation, not to mention expensive. Best Western has been our temporary home and the staff have been so great - to Dee, Brenda, Jenna, and Brittany: you rock. Thanks for treating us like family. I haven't forgotten anyone... those who asked not to be mentioned, you are in our hearts and prayers.
By the grace of God, we should be able to live on the property within a few weeks.
With gratitude for a caring community,
