Home Letter to the Editor LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A Letter from the Garcia Family

A Letter from the Garcia Family

To all Maxwell High School, Middle School, and Elementary School personnel, and everyone in the town of Maxwell that gave us support and took the time and effort to help us during this difficult time in which my family and I lost our home, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The fire destroyed 17 years of work and effort. I, Alejandro Garcia and every member of my family, don’t know how to express our gratitude to each one of you for all your help, especially now that we need it the most. 

It is so sad to see our home converted to ashes, seen how 17 years of work are destroyed in only 30 minutes. My wife Maricela and my daughters could only cry and hug each other then realized we no longer have a home and could not cover our most basic needs. 

It was especially painful for me as a father of our four to see my daughters barefooted with no clothes to wear or a sweater to protect from the cold. I could only scream, run, and cry very loud to get this horrible pain and sadness out of my heart. I felt my hands were tied and completely unable to do anything to protect my family. There are the love of my life, but I thank God nothing happened to them and I can still hug them, kiss them, and tell them how much I love them. Thank God we are still a family. 

I now ask god to give me the strength to start over and that my family continues to be together. God bless not only us, but all of you that came to help us. May he keep your home and families together just like mine. 

I wanted to say special thanks to Tracy Jones for all your help. Hugs and Kisses to you from all of us. Once again, thanks to everyone that helped us. May god always give you more. 

With love,

Alejandro Garcia and Family.
