Severe Weather Missing Keepsakes-3

In a November 2013 family photo provided by Annmarie Klein, a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary stands amid the ruins of the former home of Klein and her family in Washington, Ill., after the Nov. 17, 2013 that destroyed their home. Klein is asking for the public's help in locating three cards swept away by the twister. The cards were addressed to the three children of Klein's brother, Paul McLaughlin, who before his 2005 death from colon cancer entrusted Klein to give the cards to his children someday.
