We will back when the island is ready for us!!

This is going to be a long wait, but the reward at the end will be worth it.

Good read. Really neat story. They are good people.

We worry about some of the folks weve met and wish we could help.

Also, the Westin took a beating according to these pics.

Nice story.

The article said that Westin was going to have to be torn down? I don't know that is correct. While I have always considered the Westin an eyesore, it does service a section of the tourism industry, for high end meetings and conventions.

Heartwarming, for sure. There really ARE good people in this world. Like Fred Rogers mother always told him, "look for the helpers". TFS!

These stories are wonderful, everyday occurrences here. The stories I hear break then bring huge joy to my heart. For the most part, everyone who has are helping everyone who does not have. Only way this will work.

We gave our home to a homeless local family when we left after the storm. At least we had a roof, which they did not. As soon as our power and electricity came back our house was opened to all of our "employees" who did not have. They have showered, done laundry, taken bars of soap, laundry detergent, jugs of water and any extras that were in the house. Some STILL have nothing, and we will continue to give what we can. They will get fresh made banana bread today! lol

Not just us, but MOST.
