    If you pray my mom could use some...

    I don't get into personal issues on the internet too often, but I just can't help myself this time. Earlier tonight I got a call from my mom. She was across the street watching her house burn. Fire department wasn't able to do much good, house is a total loss as are most things in the house. A lifetime of memories and work just disappeared. She suffers from COPD and inhaled some smoke during the fire and they are admitting her to the hospital right now.

    She seems to be handling things well other than her 2 dogs and cat not making it out of the house. She inhaled the smoke trying to get them but they simply wouldn't go with her.

    I'm 1500 miles away and it is going to take me a couple of days to get home, which makes it that much more difficult on me.

    If you believe in the power of prayer I'd really appreciate you taking a moment to remember her.

    Absolutely. Best wishes to her, and you. That's really a hard thing, especially regarding the pets, but the most important thing is that she got out and is now in good hands.

    Really though, she still has her memories. That's truly something to be thankful for. Not everyone makes it through such situations still standing.

    Sad to hear of the animals not making it through. Glad she did.

    True, she has the memories, but not the memorabilia. I'm thinking of the awards and pictures from her time as a police officer, the pictures of her parents, the antique furniture she had in one bedroom that had been her grandparents, things like that.

    I will admit I'm curious to see the condition of her 1970's era S&W revolvers after this.

    House fire is one of the things I love about digital photography. It can be easy to cut a few copies of things, then store them in different places. Not so, with memorabilia, furniture and similar keepsakes. Though, with the stuff from her LE days she might find getting duplicates are possible.

    Good luck with the insurance folks. It'll be interesting to see what gets covered and where they push back, depending on the policy.
