Update on Goldendale Fire

Here's an update on the fire from Linda Runyan via June Lee:

Dear Ones,

Received a call from Linda this evening, as we were returning home  from Gerry's reception. She and Jack were at Harold's for supper.   Linda said they are still on the alert list, but not on the high alert
list. There is a great deal of smoke at their place, but not so much at Harold's.

The one thing Linda wanted to report is that Lucky McGaughy's home did not burn up. It was eye witnessed that it was burning, but that was the wrong house.

Linda said they should be okay, if there continues to be no wind, so tuck that in your prayers. She sounded good and hopeful, as her faith is strong.

Bunny Hugs & Lots of Love,

Prayers are needed!

We need to say prayers and send good thoughts to our friends in Goldendale.  Jack and Linda Runyan are not far from the fire and have already moved their horse and some other belongings to Harold's house for safekeeping.  Lucky McGaughey (one of this year's deputies) has been evacuated and may have lost her home.  They won't let her back in to see yet.  Plus, we know of other Stars who have friends and relatives in the area who have lost their homes.

Keep those prayers and good thoughts coming!
