Thank God no one was hurt. When I lost my own house and personal property in a fire, I learned what really matters in life is the memories and not "stuff". In stuff I mean material accumulations. There were things that took time to replace; legal documents and "stuff". Some things can never be replaced like family photos, baby books and family heirlooms; their lost really hits hard. I also recall all the kindliness my family received. Without even asking we received a lot of help from individuals that we remotely knew. And then there were family members that provided nothing--they just said, "You will be OK, you had insurance.' Well, it took over a year for the insurance company to pay. The mortgage still had to be paid in full even without a house. The city demanded immediate clean up of the property and even fined us for polluting the storm drains (toxic land fill clean up cost was over $5,000). The used clothes and furniture we received really helps when everything is gone. May your troubles be less, your blessings more, and may nothing but happiness, come your way.
