Thankfully, none of our carded figures or costume pieces got ruined. My husband did lose a few autographs from his collection, but thankfully those can be easily replaced. Things could have been a lot worse. Needless to say, our home is in chaos. We have spent yesterday and today packing our collections and the rest of our home. Everything will be boxed away until the repairs are completed.
The people from Servepro have been awesome and our insurance company had been very helpful.
We are trying to stay as positive as we can, which sometimes isn't the easiest thing to do. But, the kindness of others certainly goes a long way. Today, at lunchtime, I had run to pick up some food for my husband and myself. The lady who was in front of my in the drive thru paid for our lunch. Her random act of kindness was extremely touching, especially when life has thrown us a whole bag of lemons.
I would just encourage everyone to perform a random act of kindness, you never know when somebody really needs it.
