Scott A SutcliffeFriday, December 21, 2012 9:45:43 PMI know it's hard brother believe me. Worst thing I've ever seen in my life was my wife crying while she was spraying water on what was left of our home during the Bastrop Complex Fire. I don't ever want to see anything like that again. She stayed professional and moved on but I know how much it hurt. I felt every bit of it. It takes time but things will get better. If you need any pointers on what happens next, feel free to contact me. There are a lot of speed bumps ahead.
