About dosie I saw lots of trees down and around his home also the boat that belongs to roger landed across the street near thae girl that has a laundry place. If i remembered correctly thre were people using a bucket on a rope to get water from the tank that is made of concrete that they were using i guess to wash up their stuff and maybe even to drink as this was what i saw the day after the hurricane passed we wento out to the island. Carms has goen back to the island today and will return on Wednesday will see if i can get these message to her Let the avilas know that dosie and family are o.k.
Terry & Doris are fine they did not get an structural damage the only had debris that flew from all over in their yard .
Glenda Blease and Ronald Belase lost roofing of their homes parts not the entire building. But they are fine and doing great. They are safe. The sister Neldy, Faustino Canto they all had lots of celaning to do in Neldy yard the breadfruit tree fel down luckily it did not fell on top the house but they were very scared throughout the entire ordeal they are all doing fine andi am so happy that i could help these people as they are some sort of relative to both carms and myself.
Kindly inform josellie that all her families are fine and they are able to communicate to Marisol their sister through the B.T. L. office now in operation. This was made through the big efforts of the personnel as this is the only communication one can have with Caye Caulker thorugh the office.
Ifthis guyt is talking about Gabriel Pariente they are fine thye also have lots of cleanign up they were protected by trees but almost everyone on the back part of the island lost lots of precious items.
Frenchie & wife and kids are fine but they lost an entire boat with two brand new engines no insurance it was a 28' Pelican boat his other 38 landed on the back part of his property would take a helicopter to lift it easily and drop it out in the water as if they use rollers it would possible damage the keel of the boat. About the house i cannot say would have to have carms check that one out and let you know tomorrow.

Both Frenchie and Able and family are fine no injury to them. they are already helping with the cleaning up of the yards. and trying to get back on their feet.
Tico & Sarah are fine.
Tom's hotel did weathered the storm but not operating as there is still no electricity yet on the island till about 1 month times. Also people thatuse the hotel for safety are still ther as some of them still don't have anywhere to go.

I have heard that the houses of Sarah and Tico Requena and Jorge and Emparo
Requena are both still standing. I don't know any details as to what damage they may have sustained. Both families are safe
and sound. I have also heard that Mary Hettinger and Roland are back in their house. It has come down off it's posts but liveable on the ground level now. Again this is third hand info. A bit more news just came in. Dianne and Alize Siegfried have gone to the states. Destino Fuller/Roggema and sons have also gone to the states. Both currently in L.A. All for now, Ellen
