Well, fuck.

hellbob & I went to see Madagascar tonight, and it was cute.
But then we came home to a message on the answering machine from his sister.
Her house burned down. Her, her husband, and the kids weren't hurt, but the house is gone. Everything in the house is gone, except what was in the basement. If you watched Channel 5's 10:00 news tonight the house fire that they showed, that was them.
They are safe and that's what is important, but they pretty much lost everything.
One of the things that was lost that J was so upset about when she was talking to Rick was a black & white photo that I took on February 1, 1999. It was of H's little feet in the hospital on the day she was born. When she was telling Rick this he didn't realize that I still have the negative so he couldn't reassure her that it wasn't gone forever. Over the next few weeks I will be working to replace what photos I can. I gave them all the negatives from their wedding when I gave them their prints, but I have a set of all the prints too and they can be scanned. Gods, I wish I had hung on to the negatives.
The afghan that Rick & J's grandma had knitted for her was in the washing machine in the basement at the time so they still have that, but the hope chest from her great-grandma? That's gone.
It's just stuff, but some of it is stuff that can't be replaced.
They're staying with D's parents tonight, and Rick & J's dad has a house in Anoka that he's never at, so no matter what they will have a place to stay.
