Church Helping West Richland Fire Victims
WEST RICHLAND -- Friends and family are still coming to terms with the tragic loss of Sandy St. George, a mother of three young boys. The family's church members say she will be missed and they are at the service of her family.

Sandy's husband, Thomas St. George, was released from the hospital Saturday, and was in church on Sunday.

Nehemiah,4, Josiah, 3, and Malachi, 1, are the young couple's three boys. They are still staying with a friend of the family. It's the same place they were staying the night of the fire.

The family was getting ready for a camping trip when a blaze destroyed their home, their father's business, and took the life of their mother.

"They're doing as well as can be expected. The boys are little so their comprehension level on this type of thing is low. And I'm not sure to what extent they fully understand. Thomas is focusing hard on what he has to do. He's got three boys no house, no business. He's got a lot of things to deal with right now," said Randy Barnes, the Assistant Pastor of the Temple Baptist Church where the family is very active.

The church has a memorial planned for 11:30 Thursday morning and is also accepting donations for the family.
