    Default Thoughts and prayers for our Q JOint family members in the Joplin, MO. area

    Will everyone please include the people in the Joplin, Missouri area in their thoughts and prayers.

    There was a terrible, deadly tornado that smashed its way through there this evening.

    Those of you that know Pigcicles Joe know that he lives just next to Joplin in Carthage. He had told me that he was going to north central Missouri to visit Pigcicles Jr this weekend, so I thk they are all prolly in good shape, and I would think the their homestead should be OK as well. Please be in contact with any of our members that you know of that might have been in the area and keep us posted on their welfare.

    Prayers go out, hopefully no human suffrage due to storm. Lord know's it's been a terrible storm season in the heartland and south!

    Glad to hear Joe was out of town. I think the worst damage was south of his place, but have been worried about them. 24 confirmed dead in Joplin and that number will rise as darkness is hampering search and rescue. My prayers are with all in and around Joplin.

    He told me he was going over to Potosi,MO to visit his son for a couple days, don't know if he's back home yet.
    If he is he won't be working, no power in most of Joplin.
    I'll give him a call.

    Thanks all - we're fine. We got back to town a bit ahead of the storm last night. It has been a very hard time for folks in Joplin. Keep them in your heart and prayers as a LOT of folks lost their homes and property - some lost their lives.

    I work with at least on person who lost their home and the wife works with another. We know some who were taken to Sprinfield for surgery from injuries and we've received rumors of a few we know that may be dead.

    It's a fact the roof started leaking, but I'm thankful that I have a roof to leak - insurance will help with that.

    Should anyone feel impressed to help these people, please feel free to donate to the Red Cross as they are one of the first to help folks in need - I've seen it many times in this area after such storms.

    Let's not forget there are other members here from the area

    Donnie Chadd had some warnings going off in his area - You okay Donnie?

    Capt. Caveman from here in town is likely to know someone in the area touched by the storm also
