Janet S. left this comment on a previous blog, “have you heard from Rollie & Gina are they o.k. with all the flooding in Louisiana?” Gina and Rollie are currently in Houston but still have many family and friends affected by the horrific flooding in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Gina and Rollie’s home is miraculously not flooded. Their daughter Ashley and her husband Parker recently moved to Arkansas near where my family is located. Ashley has accepted a position as a physician in Hot Springs, Arkansas and Parker is completing his residency at a nearby hospital. Ashley appeared on an Arkansas TV station tonight appealing for donations and help for Denham Springs. In spite of the fact Ashley has been studying hard for her internal medicine boards which she will sit for on Friday—her heart is in Louisiana. She and her family will travel to Louisiana this coming weekend to take the donations Arkansas collects. There is also a Facebook page, Arkansas Is Coming. Rollie, Gina, Ashley and Parker will appreciate any and all help given to the people of Denham Springs, Louisiana.
If you haven’t seen the flooding on the news, here is a video our friend Kerri shared on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10154470076154874/
