Jeff said that he is on a path of recovery and healing after the death of his wife.

“He put another log on the fire,” Jeff told WFTS. “She poured the gas into it, and she ignited and exploded the canister in her hands, causing her to run in a panic.” In fact, she stopped, dropped, and rolled like you’re supposed to.

I am grateful for all the love and sometimes overwhelming support that I know is needed.

“This is truly amazing while walking through our backyard for the first time today. I came across this and cried. This shirt is the one my son was wearing the night of the fire,” Jeff wrote.

‘This is his favorite T-shirt that his mother bought him over the summer. I ask how one did not burn or burn. The jacket she was wearing fell apart and basically completely burned her arms and face, but she didn’t burn this shirt. Sometimes I am now left with questions of how. He is so happy to know that he has this shirt that he can treasure forever like me.
