The past 6 days of sharing and being in contact with neighbors who we hardly knew before the fires happened, is the beginning of a bond we will always remember.

Richard on Day 1 and 2 camped in the property, with no food or drink. Days 3-5 were made easier by the hospitality of neighbors who evacuated but had opened their homes for him to use for shelter and for food.

Thank you Veronica & Jack, and Erik. We did not expect to get to know you so intimately in so short a time.

We are thankful for your amazing kindness and for the community and generous spirit of the City of Calistoga.

While we are grateful that downtown Calistoga was spared, we offer prayers for those who have lost loved ones and property.

We continue to pray for the fires to end.
