<p>Natives of Guilford County, Frank and Emma McCraw built a life together in their modest two-bedroom home on the McCraw Family homestead. Together, the couple raised their three children in the home and lived a very simple life. Now in their golden years, Frank and Emma were looking forward to enjoying a quiet retirement - their home having been the one constant throughout their lives. <br/></p><p>However, life so rarely goes according to plan, and Frank and Emma were beset by tragedy when one of their daughters passed unexpectedly in October of 2019. Two months later, the couple again found themselves in the unbearable position of burying a child when their son, Jerry, passed away from cancer. <br/></p><p><b><i>Just one day after burying Jerry, Frank and Emma lost their home, and most of their possessions, in a fire. </i></b><br/></p><p>Through One Community | One House, Habitat Greensboro, and Pleasant Garden Baptist Church will work in partnership with numerous contractors and designers to rebuild Frank and Emma’s home, culminating in a reveal of the completed home on November 7, 2020.<br/></p>
