Mourning the loss - and celebrating the lives of two children and a young women who lost their lives in a New Hartford house house fire. Funeral services for 3-year-old Jordan,  7-year-old Joshua Morinitti and 21-year-old Jennifer Moore underway right now at St. John's Church in New Hartford right now.
The Masonic Care Community is among those trying to lessen at least some of the family's burden.
An all-day gift basket raffle is planned for Monday, with a goal of raising 2-thousand dollars for the family's expenses.
"If one person dies in a family it's excruciating and to see that many and for something that can be avoided, it's very, very sad," said Rose Reesh, a resident.
Donations of all kinds have been pouring into various New Hartford Businesses.
"There has just been such an outpouring of love, people are in here as soon as we open our doors in the morning with items, wanting to know what else they can give, it's just been so heartwarming," Cassandra Packard of Dolce Vita Children's Boutique. So much so, that no more clothing or items are need--the surplus was taken to area non-profits. Monetary contributions are still needed.
"I think everyone can relate to how much we love our children and wanting to support other families that are going through hard times," she said.
Though everyone has rallied around the cause, there's a sense that no amount of help will every be enough.
"I'm very grateful to do it. I wish I could help more. I wish I could," said Reesh.
