Family who lost home in recent Wellsville fire make statement of gratitude


The Fanton/Wright home was lost in a fire last week

By Marikae Fanton 

On behalf of myself and my family-

We would like to thank EVERYONE from the bottom of our hearts! The kindness our community has shown is truly amazing!! First and foremost, we would like to thank our local and surrounding volunteer departments and officials. A fireman told me, “We are so sorry we are so shorthanded”, but what we saw was totally different. We saw multiple volunteers from different fire companies running, sweating, exhausted and doing everything in their power to save our family home. They all worked so hard together as a team! Although it was a total loss, they contained it and saved another family next door from losing their home and many others. We just cannot thank you enough! Secondly, the amount of outreach with donations, food, clothing, and thoughts and prayers is truly overwhelming in the best way. There is no way to thank each and every one of you for everything you have done for my parents and Uncle! We just can’t put it into words… Please just know, no one has gone unseen or heard. It has been a very difficult time. There is still a lot of work ahead, but thanks to our WONDERFUL and loving community, they will have a head start at a new, fresh beginning!!!

Again, WE THANK YOU, and send our love to you ALL!!!

The Fanton/Wright Family
