Thank you for all of your concern, encouragement, and heartfelt words. These are what are giving us the tremendous support we need to face the task at hand. The property is in an overwhelming state of devastation at this point. At this time we can report that all the cabins have been damaged, our greenhouse covering is gone, and every other area has sustained water damage.
However, we can simultaneously count our losses as well as our blessings as we give thanks for our lives, the lives of our dog, cats, goats, and chickens. Within the last week Jean has been able to reach safety with her family in Oregon and David has been able to reach Dominica to work with Ron through the salvaging and repair process. There is currently no vehicle access, no electricity, and no communication to the valley. Luckily there is a generator, fresh spring water, and stores of food supplies to keep the guys going. The plan for this week will be a community effort to unblock the road starting Monday. To immediately follow will be the employment of our community members to help with the cleanup process and moving onward to the patching and preservation of the buildings.
As most of you know there could be no better suited spirits to take on this challenge as Ron and David. We have no doubt that their combined resourcefulness, patient determination, and kind and appreciative demeanor will make miracles happen. It will be a test of endurance as each day moves forward by small steps.There are guardian angels of family members and neighbors that are also with them on this journey whose homes and lives have been affected and we hope that we can all move forward together.
Many of you have asked how you can be of help. Again, just reaching out to us reminds us that the efforts are worth it, We have also set up a youcaring fund https://www.youcaring.com/ronjeanviverallidavidvictorincrescentmooncabins-966878
to set the wheels in motion. We would like to be able to satisfy the immediate needs of the crew with tools and food supplies to give them the energy to keep going and to enable all of those involved in the process to support and restore their own family needs.
Crescent Moon Cabins has a special connection to all of us and we will do our best to preserve it.
We will keep updating our Crescent Moon Cabins Facebook page as we move forward…one step at a time.
Love from our family to yours….
