Sorry to hear of your loss...
The good news is that there is a huge crop of great new projectors out there, just waiting for you to buy them! Not to mention the world of 3D, too!
I can highly recommend the JVC RS45 for 2D use. That's the one I own, and it's a fantastic projector.
I also considered the Panasonic AE7000, and the Epson 5010, which are great choices too. Let the fun begin!
