Word of mouth

My mom called her sister Melba, who had heard from their sister Muriel, who had talked to their sister-in-law Malen, who spoke to my cousin Brian in Gautier before the hurricane hit. That was too much removed from the source for me, so I called my Aunt Malen directly. She told me that my cousin said that his parents had headed to Louisana to stay in a motel, and his brother was in Florida, but that he intended to ride out the storm at home. I hope he wised up and left before the storm surge hit, because the videos show that Gautier is pretty much gone...

I'm sending good thoughts your way! Even as bad as things look, odds are that everything is ok.

Here's hoping that no news is good news right now. Fingers and toes are crossed. {{{{HUGS}}}}

You, your family, the people of Mississippi continue to be in my prayers.
