I read a post from Monday that Joe & Valin were safe at Kay and Buddy's. Since that time we have heard about Kay's death and that Buddy is still missing. I haven't heard anything else about Joe and Valin. Are they still on AC? Are they ok? I am Joe's sister. His family would like some information. Thanks so much.

Hi we're Kathy & Ric who have a house by Barb & Ian's. Ric helped put on their new roof. Was glad to hear they were ok. I'm sure they are helping everyone around them, since they knew word was out to family that they were ok.

kathyw - by "they" I assume you are talking about Joe & Valin - not Ian and Barb?? We're all still waiting to hear from Ian and Barb so if anyone has any news and could post it here, it would be much appreciated.... thanks.

I have been in pretty constant contact with Kath and Tazmara at Sundiver resort. Joe and Valin are fine and have been helping them get our boats back in the water. I am leaving London in the morning to go in there and the last request I got was for meteric wrenchs for Joe to work on the non USA boats.

Hi Melissa, I was talking about Joe & Valin. Last message was about 2:p.m. She said they were going to put the 4 wheeler in our bodega in case they had to get out. They were trying to get our doors boarded up. I don't know if she meant she was telling Lando to do it or what. Then Monday we heard on this site that they were with Kay on Saturday afternoon. I'm hoping they stayed at our house (concrete) and just can't get out because of the roads. Praying with you. Kathy

Sundiver... thanks for the 411. When you do talk with folks up N/Joe, please relay that if there's ANYTHING he/Valin need that we can get/send down, just say the word. Once the phones are back up, he can e-mail me or call 415 577 6494. Thanks a lot!!!


ps, also tell Joe Giants won tonight, beat the Mets 5-1. We talk baseball a lot...

Valin used a mobile phone to call her father (my uncle) in New Baunfels tonight. She and Joe spent the night of the hurricane in a concrete shed but are fine. Their house also survived the storm without any significant damage. I'm heading down there on the 21st so if anyone speaks to them them, tell them to let me know if they need anything.

Tell Joe, Ric said it was the professional roof job that held that house together.
