A Few Memories for Lois (Another Update)


Years ago, my sister began storing some of her personal belongings in the basement of the Dollar Barn, thinking they would be safer in waterproof tubs in a brick building than in a 100 year-old farmhouse…photo albums and all her Christmas decorations were what she cried for the most after the fire.

Before the official clean-up began, Lois, Steve and Jill poked through the rubble and managed to find something for almost every tenant–Randy’s grandpa’s gun, Deb’s mom’s silverware, John’s wallet, Jo’s necklace, Harley’s favorite clothes, Wade’s computer, and Justin’s letterman’s jacket were among the items found.

After three months under the summer sun and 7 feet of black, sludgy water, a few of my sister’s things were recovered.

And the pictures of Mad Bird!! She had him 27 years, from our friend Rich W,. who passed away recently.

It’s not much, but it’s something. Now SHE can decide what to keep and what to throw away.

  1. At last! A bit of salve for the wound.

  2. A candle. That is amazing. The world is such a weird place. Way to keep on sifting and sorting, Pajaris. Only way out is through!
