(For those that don't know- we had a house fire last week. Total loss)

We can't find DS's bear and we fear he is deseased. I don't suppose anyone has a bear named "Rolo" by Gund that their child would be willing to part with? LMK



I'm on my way out to meet the restoration people but I'm going to try to get the iphone app to load before I go. TIA


Update: Leslie - email sent. And again, ! I am so not a hugger (or a cryer) but I swear I would could just smother you right now! We had such a rough day over at the house and now knowing Rolo is back on his way to Luke just fills my heart.

Luke is still hoping he(Rolo) is in the house somewhere (or on the lawn). After today - even if we find him, from the condition of what is left, it will not be pretty. He knows they will be sending anything recognizable to the cleaners/restorers but I don't think he realizes that it's a lost cause so I will not have to break it to him thanks to the sweatest pea ever!

I just can not thank you enough Leslie! I hope you will share your address with Luke and I so that we can write you a proper thank you note.

Can I ask.. What does your son thinks happened to Rolo. I thought I'd include a letter to your son from this new rolo and explain his old one came back for repairs and is all shiny new.

So sorry to hear about your house. I hope everything goes as smoothly as it possibly can during this time for you. I'm sure it's not easy - especially with kids involved.

Oh this thread is going to make me cry! My house burned down when I was 19. We lost everything except what we had on our bodies. Sometime during that night I remembered that my favorite doll, a Christmas soldier named Soldier (original huh?) was inside. I had the doll since I was FOUR! We had 15 good years together, he was very worn or "well loved." I cried and cried. I'm so glad he's getting his friend back!

Leslie, it was very sweet and thoughtful of you to buy a new teddy bear.
