"Hitting the high notes: Everything alive that resided at our house escaped the fire unharmed with the possible exception of one unaccounted cat! The fire started from a golf cart. Half the house is totally beyond repair. I hope insurance comes Monday and then we’ll be able to make a plan. Guitars were almost a total loss. I’ll examine each tomorrow and have an accurate count. It’s not good! All art was lost ( probably 90-100 paintings.) While we are saddened by this setback it is not a knockout punch. We have the strength, attitude, faith and abilities to move forward. And we will! Thank you for your most gracious and kind words. They mean the world to this family. #," Jim Avett's Facebook post read.
