On Sunday, August 7th, this family's life was turned upside down with an evacuation and condemnation of their home after noticing a crack in their driveway. Their home was condemned due to it sinking into the ground. Insurance quickly denied their claim.
Gene and Tracy Nati have made their house a home in Corfu for over 10 years. They have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. At the time of the incident, both Gene and Tracy, along with their 13 year old daughter, 26 year old daughter, their son-in-law, and their two granddaughters (then 1.5 years old and 6 weeks old) were all living in the home together. Gene has been a deputy for the last 18 years, is a volunteer firefighter, and is a local business owner. Tracy is a loving grandmother who recently changed careers so that she can watch her grandchildren full-time.
Currently, the family is living separately - Tracy's oldest, her husband, and grandchildren are living with her husband's parents and the Nati's are in an apartment while they work to rebuild and start new. To help support this amazing family, please consider a shirt purchase or donation to their online fundraiser.
