Dear Marty are you still on line, This is Rick and Cheri, here in Texas. We have been following Keith since its birth and have been on the computer for a long time in between work worrying about you all. I talked with Hilly Boo last night, but that was before Keith hit. Where are you located on the island, we just bought property in Tres Cocos. Our prayers are with you all down there, can you give us an update as its stands now. Love Fm has not updated its site. I just got off work and am very worried about you all there. We are coming down Oct 28th for 10 days. Let us know what we can do. Thanks--
Rick and Cheri
