"I’m sure everyone’s probably knows that my shop was burnt up over night ... at this point we don’t know what started or caused the fire ... I’d greatly appreciate any and all prayers at this time .... I’ve gotta process all of this and figure out my next step ..... everything as far as glass work and tools and equipment was in my shop ... thanks for any and all concern ..."
