Severe Weather Missing Keepsakes

In this November 2013 family photo provided by Annmarie Klein, the Klein family poses in front of the fireplace mantle at their Washington, Ill., home after it was destroyed by a Nov. 17 tornado. From left are Logan Klein, 13; Brady Klein, 11; Morgan Klein, 11; Annmarie Klein, 41; Griffin Klein, 2; Eric Klein, 44; and Owen Klein, 5. Annmarie Klein is asking for the public's help in locating three cards swept away by the twister, each of which Klein's brother, Paul McLaughlin, personalized with a note before his 2005 death from colon cancer. McLaughlin had entrusted Klein to give the cards to his children someday. (AP Photo/Kara Kamienski via Annmarie Klein)
