Jerry and Marge Hempe's home in Mount Calvary burned down last night in a total loss. They are ok as their dogs alerted them.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Wow that's terrible news to hear they lost their house, but more importantly it's great to know that they are unharmed. Jerry, please don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything that we can do to help.

I just talked to Jerry. They are all doing okay, but not so good for the house. Jerry said it took 4 hours for the fire department to put it out.

I was in shock when I saw the post by Curtis. I called Jerry right away to see if they were really ok. Fires are like being robbed by someone who trashes what ever they don't steal. God bless you Jerry and Margie and those great life saving dogs.One newspaper stated the fire may have been caused by careless smoking practices. Strange cause none of them smoke.

Message from Dave Krizizke

This is from an email that Dave sent to all our fellow chapter members. Dave is a very good man and will answer any questions and I am sure will forward any calls for help from Jerry and Margie.

Thanks,
Dave


Jerry, Marge and their son just left our home and headed for the hotel.


They are fed and ready to turn in for some much needed rest.

I will continue to attempt to keep our Goldwing Family informed of what is happening.

It has not been stated as official, but it appears the house is a total loss.

Chuck, Chris, Jill and I spent the day with them for support and to assist wherever asked.

Right now it is hurry up and wait.

There is nothing that we can do to assist Jerry and Marge for the next day or two.

They are waiting for a group of professionals to show up in the morning to walk thru the house to see if there is anything that they believe they can salvage.

They are looking into temporary housing. Again they are waiting.

They are removing very little from the house at this time because they have been instructed not to.

The Red Cross has been awesome.

He is very pre-occupied right now—so please use me as a contact for him—he is busy with important phone calls pertaining to the situation.

PLEASE—PLEASE USE ME AS A CONTACT

WE KNOW EVERYONE WANTS TO TALK TO HIM, BUT THAT TIME WILL COME

ALLOW HIM TO DEAL WITH THE IMMEDIATE ISSUES RIGHT NOW. I HOPE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS REQUEST.

My home number is 920-921-2457

If no answer

My cell number is 920-251-0548

My e-mail is [email protected]

I have been printing and saving e-mails to give to him

I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING CALLS AND E-MAILS AND I AM DOCUMENTING EVERYTHING FOR THEM.

I will do my best to keep you all posted and informed—If you have questions—e-mail me or call

I will reply as best I am able

He will prepare an e-mail for me to send to all of you shortly

As I stated we will rally the troops to help as soon as we find out what we can do and how we can help

Please call or watch your e-mail for more information.

One thing we can do, if you are so inclined, shoot a couple of prayers their way. They need them!

Be safe all-----

I'm thinking I may want to check out my insurance again and be sure. I guess you just always think it can't happen to you.
