fire update

Many thanks to gillo for sending a package to my sister's family, all the way from England to Indiana! Clothes, books, all sorts of neat stuff that's not only helpful, but a big psychological boost as the family struggles through variouis challenges in the aftermath of the fire. She's a true friend.

The insurance company has decided to rebuild the house rather than replace it completely, and they give us a three month period for it to be finished before they can move in again; that puts them at getting their house back just before Christmas, if all goes well. Meanwhile, they're living in an apartment that's too small, but otherwise very comfortable and in a good location for school and other locations. So everyone's okay and they have each other, and we persevere.
