"I don’t know where it was, but the other day I saw one of my mother’s silver cups," says Jackie Stermitz.
"I see a cup over there! Ohhh – I’d almost rather not see this stuff, to be honest, because it’s all broken up."
Jackie Stermitz spent seven years in her home that was built into the hillside in the upper reaches of the Macintosh Manor subdivision near Florence. On August 17, the raging Lolo Peak fire reduced it and a neighbor’s home to rubble.
