Amy Cabrero graduated from Texas Wesleyan’s law school earlier this year. Yay. At the end of last month, her husband Mike, a Marine staff sergeant, returned from a tour in Iraq, the first time she’d seen him in seven months. Yay. Then she took the three-day Texas bar exam. Slightly less enthusiastic yay. The couple spent the first days of their reunion packing up their apartment for a move to San Diego. Drag. Monday, they found out that the moving truck and all their belongings were destroyed in a fire. Good lord. The cherry on top:
“I had just gotten my law school diploma back from being custom framed, just in time to be on the moving truck,” she says. “And it got burned up in the fire. That’s the icing on the cake.”
Chin up, Cabreros. You’re due for a heaping helping of awesomeness. Help ’em out, San Diegans.
