The family does upholstery. They make couches and replace the fabric on furniture. All their tools, couches, and everything was destroyed so I don’t know what they are going to do for support.
I can’t believe that this happened. It’s such a terrible thing. I couldn’t even imagine what I would do in their place. The crazy thing is they have such a positive attitude about the situation. It's a miracle the family wasn't hurt. Another miracle is the father’s dad’s bible survived. There wasn’t a page destroyed. I’m hoping we can help get things like clothes and shoes and give them as early Christmas presents.
They are such good people and hold a really special place in my heart. When we went to what was left of their house they offered us food and everything. They barely have anything. This is a cultural thing about Brazil that amazes me. They help and care for others even when they don’t have anything.
