5 Weeks now since the fire.

Can't begin to tell you all that has gone on and continues to go on. We still don't know if they are going to save some of the studs only, or tear to the ground the entire house. Furniture we thought was saved ended up with water damage. The over 90 years of pictures everyone was sure by the condition of the area they were in that they were all gone BUT......
They got to the pictures yesterday and called us over. 90% it appears were saved!!!! Many can be restored. I had begun to think my only son's few pictures would be gone. He died when he was a month old. Half his life was in the hospital so there were few pictures. We had so few memories to cherish. But, I found one!!!!Then I found this small brown book. Dare I to hope???? And there it was, his funeral Memorial Book. I cried with joy.
The rest of the possessions we lost was just "stuff". It was odd that a photo album would be all burned and stuck together, and when you got it open most of the pictures were fine. All I can say is "Thank you Lord."
