Hi Tom, Donna Ann and me are alive and our home made it believe it or not. God Blessed us that we had a home to come back to, we are some of the few who can boast that in our area. We live right smack in the center of the landfall between Long Beach and Pass Christian MS. Our town is pretty much gone as is most of the towns along the coast here. Every business along a 35 mile stretch of coastline here is gone and I mean completely gone. Everything south of the famous RR tracks was totally annilated. Estimates are coming in that 68,000 homes were destroyed but that # is going to go up. Whole neighborhoods after entire whole neighborhoods have been completely erased from the face of the earth. I promice you TV does not remotely show the devastation here, it is truly unbelievable. If anyone can ride through the worse areas and see entire neighborhoods completely destroyed and not have a tear in their eyes has a strong heart. Most of Donna Ann's family lost their homes and 60% of our church family lost their homes. We lived in a tent for 10 days in our front yard after we were able to return and then finally was able to find enough gas so that we could use our new generator and move back into our home for some much needed rest and A/C. Really has been hot here except for today. We have electricity now and water and toilets but still are without landline phones, cable, internet or email services. We have limited mobile services so you can try and call us at 1-228-234-2276 but I can't promice you that you will be able to get through, many people has told me they got busy signals alot before getting through, alot of cellular calls trying to go through a limited # of towers that are left here. I am not going to complain because we have so much more left than most. There are still 60,000 + living in shelters. I will be back more regular when our internet service is restored. Thanks Tom for your concerns and for the prayers that I know you said for us here. Hi to you too Steve
you don't have anymore kids yet do you?
Thanks again y'all, God Bless.
