Grateful for help after fire

To the editor:

On Dec. 6, 2012, my husband Jeff Waatti and I lost our home to a house fire at 604 Iroquois St. in Laurium. We would like to thank everybody who has helped by donating and volunteering their time in the aftermath. The last few weeks have been very hard, but with the wonderful help of everybody in the Copper Country, our ordeal has been easier to handle.

We are now settled into a new home and our “hero” cat, Chloe, is home with us. The outpouring of help from the people in the Copper Country was wonderful. Thank you all.

Jeff and Vicki Waatti
