Prayers lifted up for everyone!
You know, we sit here all day, waiting for some kind of news...hoping it is good...hearing hope and faith,tears and desperation,love and caring(for all).We want to hear news about our loved ones...no matter what it is...but we don't really want to hear that it is bad news...not the ultimate. Do you know what it is going to do to people on this board,to read the subject of this post? Their hearts are going to freeze...even before they open it to read.
That is sad and cruel...but people have to know,don't they!Marty you have done a marvelous job/are doing a marvelous job and I know you have concerns and worries of your own.We can only thank you for what you are doing. If you post again about this, please make sure of your facts...there is sooooo much conflicting news. Take care and I wish the best for you and your loved ones...for everyone on Caye Caulker, everyone in Belize and surrounding areas that were effected by Keith. My prayers are with everyone. Love, June

Hey Caye Bwai: What's new with you these days? You still modeling your way around the world? The report came direct from Orange Walk. Not sure how many fatalities.

Keep helping. That's all we can do right now.

Hey IG.. yeah.. I was supposed to be in San Diego as we speak but I put it on hold so that I could help my cousins Vicki Arceo & Lisa Forman get their stuff together to go to Houston and meet Charles where they will start shipping supplies to Belize.

The OW situation is very distressing and I would have thought that they would have schools closed for a week or so considering the gravity, but I guess they're not taking it that serious ;(.

FATAL TRAFFIC ACCIDENT ON NORTHERN HIGHWAY
A fatal traffic accident occured shortly before 9:00 this morning. It involved a venus bus and another vehicle. The bus was transporting among others, students to either orange walk or Belize city. As a result of the collission the fully loaded bus overturned into a creek. So far one person has been confirmed dead and several others injured, including children.
