He shared the following about the loss of their family home:

“Yesterday afternoon, on March 17th of 2021 my family suffered a major loss, not only the home my mom and Steve and their little fur babies were living in, but the home my entire family grew up in. The home my grandma Pat and grandpa Bill raised their children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, all the neighborhood kids, and friends.

“Jaylynn and Steve are completely safe, but heartbroken. They were able to save all but 4 cats, they are still unable to be located, but praying they are safe and still hiding. As of now it appears there is nothing salvageable, a complete loss.

“I can not thank everyone enough for all the love, support, phone calls, and messages. Much love from Jaylynn, Steve, family and friends.”
