Tornado Survivor Searches For 3 Irreplaceable Cards

ST. LOUIS (November 28, 2013) Annmarie Klein knows she's blessed to have survived the tornado that leveled her family's home in central Illinois, and she understands that most of the things that were lost can be replaced, but that’s not true for a mint green box that contained three cards.

The cards blown away by the Nov. 17 tornado in Washington, Ill., were personalized by Klein's brother, Paul McLaughlin, with notes for his three children before his death from colon cancer in 2005.

The Rockland, Mass., man entrusted Klein to give them to his children someday, and now she feels like she failed him.

Some of her other keepsakes have turned up 150 miles away, near Warrenville outside of Chicago including a picture of her late brother during the baptism of one of her five children.
