House fire update, of sorts

Thank you all so much for the kind words and offers of help.
hellbob's bosses have told him to take as much time as he needs to help his sister, so he will be heading out to her place soon. I'm stuck here at work with my eyes spontaneously leaking as I get each new offer of help & sympathy.
Some people have asked about the kids.
The daughter is 6 1/2 years old, and the son is 4 1/2.
We have no idea what their clothing sizes are (we don't have kids yet, we can't estimate those kinds of things!) but I have told Rick to get the clothing sizes for the whole family while he is there, and also to find out anything else he thinks they'll need right away.
I can't believe how many of you have offered to help, especially those who have never even met us in real life (and especially those who live on another continent).
As we know more of what they need I'll update, but for now we're just counting our blessings that they are safe and unharmed. Stuff can be replaced, they can't.
*hugs* to you all.
