      This poor woman lost EVERYTHING and all you can do is be a hateful jacka**. She was asleep and was awoken barely getting out with her life. I hope that you never have to endure such tragedy just to have someone as callous and ignorant as you comment about it. Shame on you!!!!!! I know you obviously have an inferior intelligence so may I point out that what you see could be an angle from someone else’s yard? Of course not because you thought you would post an insensitive comment to be funny…well guess what?? It wasn’t and just shows what type of person you are!

      • WELLLL !!

        Damm tiger you must be a teacher or an LGBT member yourself !! First thing is an insult gotta be a DEM or less or both !!

        Actually I am neither!! I just find it necessary to call out insensitive jerks!!! Maybe you need to put yourself in someone’s shoes before trying to be funny. There is nothing funny about this at all!!! It is people like you that makes me sad to realize where our moral compass has gone. You should be ashamed of yourself. I have a great sense of humor, but your comment was uncalled for and disrespectful. She lost EVERYTHING!!!!! Regardless of what it looked like, it was her HOME!!!!

        Trut….Since you are such a compassionate person…why don’t you go by the hospital where she is laying and offer your assistance in finding her clothes, food, or shelter since everything she has is gone. The hardened hearts and lack of compassion for people you don’t even know is astonishing. My comments have been directed to that fact. This woman has done nothing to you or Mr. WILBUUUUR…but as long as YOU have a place to lay your head all is well. My comments were not directed at you so cussing me serves no purpose other than to show everyone who you are as a person. Good evening!

      For the ignorant comments that really don’t deserve a response. The woman’s house was actually always extremely clean. The vehicles and tall grass are on a retaining wall that is probably 4 feet tall next to her driveway. She would never have let her lawn grow that tall. You have no idea what you are talking about, so you should keep your ignorant comments to yourself.

      Wilbuuuur, I’m sure you’re a pig just like your name insinuates. You probably live at home with your mother and own nothing.

    This is a close friend of mine. Her house was beautiful and always clean. You have no idea what you are talking about. She worked hard for everything she had and has one of the best hearts of anyone I know. So maybe you should keep your rude ignorant comments to yourself. Just remember karma comes full circle. Hopefully you won’t have to endure the terrible things she went through today!

      I have a box of clothes started for her. Medium shirts and about a 7/8 in jeans. Anything would be appreciated. This is a woman that would give you the shirt off her back. Thanks for being so kind and generous.

    Kim B., I can’t be there for the benefit but would like to send $5. Where can I send it? I sent SC85 a message about clothes, but when looking, I really don’t know if she’s short or tall. I would rather send money & let her use it on what she can wear or needs. I live on SS, so I don’t have a lot but will do what I can. Has she found a place to stay?
