OUR BELOVED GULF COAST

My grief over losing Peggy takes a back seat to the grief of the people along our beautiful Gulf Coast.

Peggy and I are from Alabama and know that part of the world very well.

The destruction of the coast and the images that I have seen on television for the past few days has crunched my heart.

I know that Peggy is well, safe and is being taken care of where she is right now and for that, I am thankful.

My heart and prayers goes out to the people who are suffering through the destruction of Hurricane Katrina.

I love the Gulf Coast and have gone there since I was a child and to view the destruction is very painful.

Please pray for all of the people there. They will need your money as well as your prayers.

Please go to...

To donate to the Red Cross.

I have seen the very best and the very worse from the people who are trying to survive this castastrophe.

I am thankful that Peggy doesn't know about this hurricane. She lived along the Alabama and Louisiana Gulf Coasts and this news would break her heart.

We need to remember that we are Americans and we help in times of tragedy.

Peggy would be the first to give her time and money to the relief of the people along our beloved Gulf Coast!

I Love You Today, Peggy!

The preacher where we have been attending donated 1000 dollars to the red cross hurricane relief last ngiht.  It is a sad catastrophe.

It is good that Peggy does'nt have to know the sad things that would hurt her.  

They will build the beautiful beaches back.  It will take time.  Our favorite spot to visit no longer exists... but they will build it back, it will be different, knew and beautiful again...Just like Peggy.

Love,
Wendy

I am from Alabama too, Mary Louise.  Just moved back mid March from Colorado to help my son through a difficult time.  We are in east central Alabama.  Already, it is affecting us, as the grocery stores are running out of supplies and a lot of the gas stations are running out of gas.  Scary times for sure, but God will see us through.

I enjoyed your pictures of your sister and you in front of the gulf.  I am glad you have your beautiful memories.  

I have been to the gulf several times myself.  It too breaks my heart to know the destruction and devastation that is taking place there now.

Love and prayers,
Susan

These are the things that remind us how "real" life is. My thoughts are also with those who went through this devastating storm. It make those everyday annoyances seem much less important.
