Axford family surrounded by community of care after fire
The Axford family lost everything except each other in a fire last winter, but gained a much bigger family when love, care and support came from everywhere.
"I don't feel the same about stuff anymore," Lacey Axford said. "Our faith, friends, family, community and new pets have been important to our recovery. Those relationships have gotten stronger."
It's been nearly a year since the family lost their home and beloved pets in a fire, most likely caused by a lamp. Their community rallied around them as they mourned and started piecing their lives back together.
