I am stunned, and so sorry to hear of your loss. As a father of three beautiful children I cannot even begin to imagine the pain that you, your daughter, and the rest of your family must be suffering through at this time. If there is anything I can do to support, whether it be an ear on the end of the phone, a note to respond to an email, or otherwise, please feel free to reach out.

Best wishes,
Evan

My dear friend Steve. I have no words to make things better for you and your family. I wish I could think of anything that would make a difference right now but I simply can't.

Please know you are being thought of, loved and cared about by those that matter most to you and all your friends on the Café and in this world of magic.

Penney and I are very sad and have broken hearts for your little one Lucas.

Now he lives back in heaven and sometimes God just lends us his angles for a little while here on earth before he takes them back. You will see your little grandson again when it is time to be with him but for now, please know you we are thinking of you and especially of Lucas and your daughter.

You are in our prayers.

Please if you haven't done so already, I would ask everyone reading this thread to give whatever they can afford to donate to Steve's daughter and her family at http://www.giveforward.com/stevebrooksfund If you have ever wanted to truly make a difference for someone now would be the time. Steve's daughter has lost her little boy and their home all at once. Basically their whole world is changed forever. Your donation will help the next few days be a little less financially devastating. Please open your hearts and any amount will do. Steve is an amazing person a true friend and right now, if you have ever wanted to do a little bit of good in this crazy mixed up world for someone who needs it, please just give. Support our brother and his family.

My deepest and sincerest condolences to Steve and his family. God Bless and you and your family will be in my prayers.

This all seems rather strange as just three weeks ago the same type of fire started in my neighbors home!
I'm retired and for some odd reason I went into my backyard to check on a bird feeder. I smelled smoke and looked up to see smoke rising from my neighbors roof. I immediately ran to their home and rang the bell and knocked on their door to find that no one answered as that was my first concern. With that I immediately called the fire department while on their front porch. They responded within about 5 minutes (amazing) and took they out the roof and windows and the ensuing water. I later talked to the fire chief and asked him what happened. He said that if I had not noticed the smoke when I did and called the the fire would have been quite severe in about another ten or so minutes. What started it?..... a microwave! He told me that I would not believe how many fires are started by older microwaves that are OFF, but yet....they start many, many fires! Ever since then I unplug my microwave (an older model) when I'm not using it. Just a WARNING to everyone!!
