We’re looking for a new door frame and maybe a new paint job.
The damage to the house is also extensive.
Our home is in a very bad condition and the windows have been boarded up.
We’ve got to get a new roof.
Our house is a total loss, and it’s just a horrible situation.
My husband and I have two young kids, ages 4 and 8.
We live in a house that has been in the family for about 25 years.
It’s just one of the worst things I’ve ever seen happen to a home.
We can’t do anything right now, we’re just in the worst shape of our lives.
I have no idea what I’m going to do.
I don’t know if we’re going to have money to fix this.
It really hurts.
I’m just really scared.
I can’t even leave my home.
I hope that my husband can help us.
I need help.
The other day, my husband said, “I’m not going to leave.”
I said, no, he’s not.
I just need you to go help him.
I really need you, he said.
And I’m sorry for his loss.
Thank you, Mr. Mascarenhas, for saving my family.
