DANBURY, Wis. (AP) — A retreat lodge for families facing the serious illness or death of a child is working to rebuild in Burnett County after last weekend’s storm.

Faith’s Lodge is still standing, but huge trees were toppled across the 80-acre property when the storm hit the Danbury area Friday.

A Minnesota couple, Greg and Karla Sheehan of Maple Grove, planned to visit Faith’s Lodge this week. The Sheehans stayed at the lodge last summer after their 1-month-old infant, Brendan, died.

KSTP-TV says they planned a return trip with their 6-year-old daughter, but were told the lodge may be closed for a month.
