It was a long story....and I cut and pasted and kept most of the thread posts and behind the scenes stuff that happened......and it is truly hard to believe it was over a decade ago....but;

Long story short....for over a week, a group of folks that came to know each other on this board worked to find any word at all of the fate of Patty G's kin after Katrina hit off of this board.........

...then we went public and sent out a message on the ABB looking for help in tracking some names.....and that was when Bhawk found an article...get this..... by a newspaper reporter from Pittsburgh....who was covering the Katrina refugees in Texas....and wrote about a 14-year old named Rebecca Fournier, 14, and her grandfather, Richard Hancock, who ".....After climbing down from their roof, the two took a small boat to high ground and then got on the back of a tractor. They took a ferry to Algiers, just across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter in New Orleans. There, they boarded a charter bus last night amid people fighting to get on, Fournier said."

Here is the breakthrough thread...with Patty G's initial response, "Oh my God I can never thank you guys enough. I will write more later but I can't stop crying!";
