That blows... I think whats worse is losing memories not the house. If I lost all the pictures and videos of my kids and things like that wow that would be devastating.
Houses can be replaced but certain items can't... you know what I mean.
Hey I know a thing or two about houses right now... my house is torn to bits right now. All the siding on my house is that Masonite crap and its all rotted so I had to tear it all off, plus my houses foundation is cracked so they had to dig it up, put jacks in there jack it up and pour more concrete, blah, blah. My house looks like a war zone right now!
As far as Tim goes man that really blows sorry to hear that.
