Our hearts go out to our friends Marilyn and Ed Dray, The Happy Wanderers. We read on Facebook yesterday about their tragic fire while they were traveling from Missouri to their favorite summer haunt, Colorado Springs. Thankfully they are ok and were able to save their truck, but they lost their beautiful Mobile Suites 5th wheel home and all the contents when a wheel locked up and caught fire.
Ed’s message to all of us RV’ers is to carry more than one small fire extinguisher. He said he almost had the fire out when his one extinguisher went dry. Once again we are sadly reminded that things like this can and do happen. It’s important to be prepared, and even more important to cherish and treasure each day and each person in our lives!
The story of their loss is on their blog entry today.
And, if you’re so inclined, there is an opportunity to help them with a donation at this RV-Dreams page.
The picture below is from last June when we had lunch with them at one of our favorite downtown Colo. Spgs. restaurants, Jose Muldoon’s.
Marilyn and Ed, there aren’t any words to express how sorry we are about your loss, but we’re grateful that you are both OK. Please know we are keeping you in our prayers and hearts every day!
