Letter to the editor: Family thankful to first responders

On Feb. 27 our family lost our home from a house fire. Although we face the struggles of putting our lives back together, we have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from our community, friends, family, organizations — including the Veterans of Foreign Wars — American Legions, donations from a Go-Fund-Me account, the Addison Central School District, my 4-H community and others.
A special thank you to all the fire and rescue people and the Red Cross who came to our needs on that frigid day and for the wonderful supper that was provided by the Orwell Masons and fire department. We are grateful from the bottom of our hearts for your thoughts, prayers, monetary donations, clothing, gift cards and best wishes.
It has been surreal to us for all the generosity and concern that our community has given us. As we continue to rebuild our home and our lives we will be ever so grateful for everyone’s help and support.
Thank you all!
The family of Neil and Terri Metcalf
Raymond and Jarod Bushey
