Katrina has left so many unsure whether they have a home to come home to. Art and I made it safely to Michigan with Cricket before the hurricane made landfall on August 29th. We have been glued to the TV watching the devasation and destruction left from this powerful storm. I know my friends, Tanmye, Chuck are safe with their two cats in a hotel in Northern Lousiania. Brenda, Jerry, John and Karen are safe also, along with their pets. My other friends Steve and Debb, Chris and Andrew are in a hotel four miles down the road from Tammye and Brenda. I haven't been able to get hold of my friend Sally. She is a nurse at Ochsner Hospital. I know she was on hurrican duty. This afternoon I heard that Kenner, LA was under water. I hope her husband Bruce is with her. I am 1,009 miles from reality. I am Wondering what we will come home too when they give the ok God Bless New Orleans. The Crescent City needs so much help right now. I will write more in the days to come. Bev

Bev, I am so glad to see that you, Brenda, Tammy and signif. others are safe!!!! Andrew and I are in
Jackson, MS at my mom's. No power, but we and the cats are safe and sound.
I have been thinking of and worried about so many people, and though I never make it to bead meetings anymore, you have all been in my thoughts and prayers. It's so hard to be unable to check on people. I will be thinking of and praying for Sally.
All the best, Jodie Robinson

Hi Beverly, I am so glad to here that you are okay and safe. We are staying in Baker, Louisiana with relatives. Looks like we will be here for a while. We are very fortunate we have all the things that we need food, lights, and water, so we are counting our blessings. I have been so worried about everyone. I will be checking back regularly to see if you have anymore posts.
