example
Example

Brazziell’s shocking photo of Chance Gagnow standing on the site of his now destroyed home is heart wrenching. The thought of all someone’s possessions being destroyed in a few minutes strikes fear in the heart of many Central Texans. We have seen the graphic carnage on the nightly news and are quickly saddened and scared at the thought of losing our family pictures and mementos. In this drought we are all one person’s careless mistake away from losing it all.
