(Facebook post by Mary Kay Walsh, "Seven generations of our family have lived in this house. So many memories made here when our grandparents lived here and then later as our parents. My niece and her family did call this home until today. I am so thankful that Kathryn Tucker Warren and Josh Warren along with their sweet babies were protected from harm. Thankful that my sister Vanne Tucker and brother in law Leon Tucker did not receive complete destruction to their home and were not hurt.. We also lost our rental house . Thankfully the renters were out of town this morning. We have lost property but others have lost loved ones. We are so saddened for that."
