Anyone hear from Bucky yet. He's gotta be one of those who are still waiting for power to be restored. My prayers still go out to him, his family, and everyone else on the coast.

I heard on the radio this morning that there's a Nor'easter heading for the coast. I hope it stays north of the areas hit by Sandy.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

My prayers to you & your father Claire. I will keep positive thoughts as well during this difficult time.

Watching the CNN news the aftermath of the hurricane are so devastating. I will continue to pray for all the families affected.

I had a rough day. I got a call from a nurse at his hospital, talked to Mom. He isn't expected to live through the night. Because I'm the eldest, Mom assigned me to call my little sisters. I done well, I live way too far away, but my sibs within driving distance were there when I called. I won't be able to be there to say good-bye, but I forced myself to call and say good bye. So many tears have been shed, and I've called and cancelled all holiday plans. Told Mom I'd fix Thanksgiving dinner. I'm sitting here wondering when I'm going to get "the call". I have one sister I cannot get ahold of. For those of you who need a kick in the fanny, Puh-leeze let your family know when you change phone numbers. I know that nowadays people change phone numbers more often than they change underwear. My father will die tonight, and his favorite daughter won't be there because she can't let us know her phone number!

Dearest Claire,
Prayers going out to you and your family. I know how hard it is to be far away. I hope someone can get ahold of your sister. May your memories comfort you.
