I want to take just a minute to say good luck and God's Blessings to everyone that's going to be affected by this storm! I remember going through the devastation of two here in Vero last year...Please! as soon as you all can, come back on line and let us know that you're ok! Angel

Thanks Angel...

believe it or not, we never even got a drop of rain....

prayers are still needed for those on the panhandle....especially the pensacola area....



I know...God love 'em! Two Cat 4's in less than a year! What wasn't gone from Ivan was taken by Dennis, for sure!

But I am glad you all were spared! Let's keep our fingers crossed that we're ALL done for the next few bazillion years!

Here's an example of what Dennis did to The Big Easy...even tho we were on the best side (west side) the northern winds blew the lake over the sea wall...

sweeters guys!

its just stuff...........



Are pictures of your departed loved ones just stuff? Are the awards that your kids won through scholastic achievements just stuff? Are the family heirlooms that have been passed down for 4 generations just stuff? Is the dining room set that you picked out with your fiancee but never got to sit at with them because they were killed 2 weeks later in a car crash just stuff?

To some it may be, but to the person who just lost it because of a hurricaine, or an accidental fire, it is the only means of recalling the fondest memories when the mental image starts to fade.

The monetary value of the 'stuff' is cause enough for sadness, but the sentimental value of that same stuff is immeasurable and irreplaceable.

My heart goes out to any/all those affected by Dennis and any of his not-so-friendly family members.

Just my $.02



Tink I'm not being unsympathic...I went through Loma Preda, (earthquake),my house cracked....and insurance wouldn't cover it....lost many things but my loved ones are still here and i can take more pics...

I understand what your saying about precious moments and memories....I've had my share of losses...but and I know some will not understand....I would rather have my family and friends alive to return our memorys together than a stick of furniture or a piece of paper....been there done that....

My family lives in Florida and my Mom has gone through many of these storms...she learned to vacumn seal all the pictures and valuables,memorys that count,sticks them in "tupperware",, the sheet works!!

she then sticks it in a truck.. oop's trunk.... and throws it in the bottom of the pool it's dry and still there after the storm...

go figger!!!!

Oh forgot she throws all the patio furniture in there too....

still there when she comes back....

Sorry, perhaps I didn't communicate very clearly. I was referring to 'momentos' of those who have already passed. Things left to us by people who were already taken by a seperate tragedy altogether. Of course they will be remembered always, but there are litle things that remind us of good times past and can never be replaced, pics of... a first fish caught with your Dad, driving the boat on Grandpa's knee, a sweater knit by a grandmother who has gone to meet her maker, love letters from a significant other who has moved over to the other side.....

The memory of the person will remain vivid always, but it's remembering the special little moments that we are robbed of because we have nothing to remind us of them any more.

To me at least, that is so much more than just stuff.

Sorry for the lack of clarity.



But Tink you just said it ....it's always a thought that you will never forget.......it's with you always...and can be reproduced.....

Tink

i understand where you are coming from--and you are right--yet so is Rockie--when my mom almost died in a car accident--it is who gives a chit about the car--she lived

so when we weigh the stuff vs my putting my feet on the ground and walking or crawling away from mother nature i thank my higher power for granting me that--and yes i can't replace the pics of my grand baby--or wedding pics or the lunnheon china set my great grandmother brought over from Ireland--but i can get up and take a breath of air and better yet i can hug my grand baby--or come all the way up there and give you a great big hug

peace

Tinker, you are exactly right about the memories that "things" hold for each of us. But, I think I can speak for everyone here that has lost a loved one tragically, those "things" don't mean a thing without the life of the loved one to go with it. As for me, I give up every single momento I have of my daughter & her children for one more day with them.
For those that lost "things" because of Dennis, be grateful that you are still alive to miss those things. We got lucky here in Memphis, Dennis pretty much fizzled out before it got here so all we have seen is a nice day of slow soaking rain.
