Hi Tamra (and family); I am so sorry that this happened to you; Thank you for the updates and thank God that you and your husband were able to get out and that he was able to find Belle in all that devastaion. I agree with Carole, that this is not the time to make big decisions; take some time for yourself; we will definitely be here for you and will gladly welcome you back when you start creating; that kind of therapy, (alongs with kisses from Belle) will be a big help! I too had a fire, three months before my wedding; while my family lost a lot of material things, we truly learned of the goodness of others, a lesson I am eternally grateful for; I hope the same is true for you. God Bless You!

Tamra & Ken - I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how it feels to lose a beloved pet, let alone three. I'm so very happy to hear that you two made it out safely and Kristin's little Belle too.
Best wishes

How horrible. I am sorry to hear of your loss and hope that life can get back to normal as soon as possible.

One news report indicated that a laser cutting machine might have been to blame for the fire. Can you elaborate on this? It makes me a little nervous -- I didn't realize machines like this could cause a fire.

Tamra, I know your heart must be broken, I too love my animal as though they were people. I'm so so sorry for all you have lost. I just received a package from The Card Ladies by mail today. This seems surreal to me but I'm sure it's all too real to you. Please accept my best wishes and heartfelt sympathy for you and your family. I'm sure your puppies will now be your guardian angels.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your furbabies will be waiting on you and Ken at the Rainbow Bridge. Wow, that little Belle must be something special! And I bet she's getting a little spoiled as well, but she deserves it. Praying for a speedy recovery for all of you.

Tamra,
So sorry to hear of your loss. I can't add to what has already been said, just wanted you to know that your family is in my thoughts. I find stamping to be very theraputic and hope you continue to stamp as a way to process what has happened and help you to heal. Hugs to all of you.

I'm so sorry for your loss! My house burned when I was about 7 years old and I still remember how hard it was for us all to start over again. Just not having your own things is hard enough - even worse to lose beloved pets AND a business. Maybe some of the customers that you have had would be willing to send you their templates so that you can make new ones and help you get started again - I'm sure provision will come from places that you least expect it to.
May God bless you and give you a speedy recovery.

My prayers go out to you and your husband for a speedy recovery for your injuries as well as getting back on your feet.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your pets and of your business but so thankful that you and your hubby are safe. I hope you are able to get things back up and running. If so, you could change the name of your company to include *Phoenix*, as you rise up out of the ashes! Sorry, just trying to make you smile. You and your hubby are the most important issues here. Stamping may be *life* but your lives are much more precious. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

Please accept the thoughts and prayers of my family to yours. We are so sorry for all your losses but most especially your fur babies as total animal lovers we understand. We are grateful that you and your hubby are still here and I am sure there is a higher purpose for you both. I will be checking in to see what we can do to try and make this better for you both. If I know one thing for sure the people in SCS are the best and you will be supported back to a place of healing and love. May God bless you and yours

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that you are healing and know that things will get better! I am thankful that you and your husband were able to make it out of this okay.

I'm sorry to see your company shut down and hope that you will be able to reopen it in the future. I literally just got my first order from you yesterday (die cut shrink plastic shapes). Please know that your company will bring smiles to the faces of my 3 1/2 year old niece and 5 year old nephew (and all who watch them) as they color in and shrink the plastic dolls I bought them! Without knowing it, you have brought great joy to two little kids!
