COPY-Residents reflect on what really matters

Associated Press - April 12, 2009 4:55 PM ET

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Many who were sifting through the rubble of their belongings after Friday's tornado say they learned that what's really valuable isn't valuables.

Laura Inmon told The Tennessean that her husband spent four or five hours going through the ruins of their house to find her engagement ring. He found it, but considering how hard he looked for it, she says, she sees what she really has.

Jenny Bloebaum says she was expecting the remnants of her home to be declared a total loss.

And while she found some things, like baby and wedding pictures, she says all she really needs from the house are her husband, the kids and the dogs.
