hey everyone-- thanks again. her boyfriend has an apartment in detroit also. and my parents drove across the state to help her. she will be able to get into the apartment on friday but i guess there is more than a foot of water in her room (on the 2nd floor!) i just feel so bad for all of the families and people who lost everything. they have confirmed that it was a suicide of the evicted guy--and it just got out of control fast.
her request...this sounds funny but she collects postcards and letters (has her whole life) and lost all of them. she told me to tell you all that what she would love is to have your kids draw a picture or find a quirky or unusual postcard and send it to her.
i think it's those sentimental-type things that she is going to have a really hard time with--i can't imagine.
my sil and i have rounded up a lot of clothes and my parents are going to help her get new glasses (she can't really see without them)
