Wildfires Destroy PK

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers, 
my family thanks you!!

This was taken this afternoon as we tracked the wildfires.
My aunt and uncles lakehouse is (now was) on the water on the far right :(

It was sad enough that the ranch-house and 300 acres burned 40 hours ago, but I just got the news that the lakehouse in Hells Gate got caught by the wildfires.  Burned.  Forever gone.

We have been so blessed to have memories after memories from the last glorious 16 years at Possum Kingdom.  My aunt and uncle made this place a home for all of us .... 4wheel rides in the dark, mud fights in the lake, boating galore, biscuits and gravy, 4th of July shenanigans (one being when Gabe got bit by a copperhead snake and ended up in the ER), chili dogs, rockin' the jet skis and telling people we were triplets, cinnamon candies, movie marathons, playing on the rocks, trips to the mini-airport, and more and more.  These are only 100th of them all.

All of us went out with a bang at the surprise party last month - 
All 22 of us (minus Gabe) and we were blessed to be there.


It's time like these that make you realize how things can change in a heartbeat.  AND, don't get me wrong as it's not necessary the "things" that matter although it's a hard pill to swallow with them being taken away from you.  I hate this for the Glasscocks, but all those memories will forever be cherished and thankful for everyones safety.

Continue to pray for all the families affected in this horrendous tragedy.  The flames are about 200 feet high, and rain isn't coming until tomorrow night ... ahh make it stop!!!
