Dear Tina and Steve
I am so saddened with the news about your home. John showed me the article in the newspaper and it was confirmed by Peter who helped with the attempt to save the house. John and I were shocked and saddened to learn of the devastating fire that destroyed your house. I'm sure you are upset about the loss of your possessions, but we are so thankful that you all escaped without injury.
I have already begun attempts to raise supplies for your immediate needs. Please do not hesitate to stop by if you are in need of a comforting friend or a homecooked meal.Sincerely
