Sherry the corn looks scorched too , did it do much damage to the crop? Good thing it was green..

My heavens, it's nothing but a pile of ashes! Whew! I'm glad it didn't spread any further. I hate that you lost so many irreplaceable things, though. I'm so sorry, sweetie.

Sherry, I'm SO sorry for your losses -- how scary it must have been! As has been said many times already, I'm just glad nobody was hurt. But oh! what was lost... it's heartbreaking, and I'm thinking of you.

Love,

JudiA

To say I'm sorry seems very inadequate, but I truly AM, Sherry! From the pictures, I would have to say with everyone else that you are so lucky that fire didn't spread. Thank goodness no one was injured! Sad as it is to lose things, it's still not as bad as it could have been. I just love you so much & my heart cries for you!

Oh Sherry, How frightening. I see dead grass...that fire could have spread and got everything within miles. I'm glad that was a green field of corn behind it. Sounds like Jeff showed up just in time. So, sorry you lost so much.

My heart breaks for your loss.. it's very hard during these times to think that God has even better in store for us, but it is true.. hopefully you can find comfort somewhere in that.. know that we are all feeling for you at this time.

Flashback for me...years ago a storage shed burned on our property and I can emphasize with the pit in your stomach and the sense of loss. Very traumatic for you and your family.

Sherry,
So sorry to read about your fire, and to see the devastation in the pictures. Thank God no one was injured. Fires are very frightening, I lived through one as a child. You don't forget them.
Love to you, Belinda
