Abundant Life's heritage seed collection destroyed by fire

I heard about this through an organic gardener's mailing list I am on. It happened over a month ago and it took quite a bit of savvy searching to find a link. (You have to read down a bit to get to the part about Abundant Life; this is in a local newspaper archive and obviously the loss of a supermarket had a greater impact on local lives.)
If anyone is growing plants that they originally got from Abundant Life seed, the company wants to hear from you, as they will try to rebuild the huge collection that was lost. Of course, this is a bigger hit to the planet than just the loss of one small business.
Here is a letter from Abundant Life about how they will procede to recover from the terrible loss.
UPDATE: The Abundant Life website is being updated regularly as the situation develops. As well as the priceless seed stock, they also lost membership records in the fire.
