Default VickiC, Hoping You Are Okay!!!

Being in Arkansas, I know first-hand how scary and devastating the tornado's have been this week. So many people killed, injured and homeless.

VickiC lives in an area in Alabama that was hit hard and I haven't heard from her though I have read that power is out in that area and could be for a while.

My prayers are with everyone affected and especially our friend, Vicki.

Agreed totally. I had family near the areas of Ga where it hit pretty bad. Luckily it wasn't that bad, but here's hoping everyone is healthy!

Prayers for all people affected.

After seeing this thread for a few days, it finally occurred to me that as Vicki is one of my long-time customers, I must have her phone number!

Well, I just got off of the phone with her, and she and her family are emotionally shaken up, but physically fine. Lost power, but have a generator, and the phone lines have been up and down, but things are looking up.

Thanks for posting, Ray. Our phones are also out and while we do have power and aren't even close to being in as bad a shape as Alabama, Arkansas is now flooding in many areas. I guess we've all got our problems.

But I am so thankful to hear from Vicki!!! I heard from her today and I thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers for all the southern states affected by the storms. It's a great comfort to have friends that care.
