    I am so sorry to hear about the destruction. I hope your family can have a speedy recovery and if there is anything I can do, donations or what ever it maybe let me know. I have already donated to Red Cross but if you know any other charities let me know. Take care and stay safe.

    Best regards,

    William Belle

    Well said, Sabra,

    I myself, experienced what you refer to in your note.

    It takes just a little bit of difficulty for people and family to band together as one and enjoy the best of what life has to offer.

    We are all thankful that the difficulty was only slight, as we all know of people who are living in “horror” as they experience the aftereffects of Sandy

    In my house in Atlantic Beach, my only damage was about 4 inches of water in my garage, the lowest level of the property grade, but one just has to visit the neighboring town of Long Beach to see what this storm did.

    In the city, I am on 5th and 73rd , so we were a safe haven for 2 of my kids, spouses and grandchild, who live in Chelsea, no electric.

    How enjoyable it was to be all together for a week straight

    Our office on W 37th was also without power and we had to move our server to Miami and all employees either worked remotely or had the use of a hotel room temporary office uptown.

    Clients either had their own share of problems or were totally understanding

    I am happy to hear from you Sabra

    Please make sure to include me on your next event invite

    Thank you

    Sabra —

    I am happy to hear your parents are managing under the circumstances. The storm certainly created physical and emotional upheaval for many friends and families. I am glad you have been able to help out your folks.

    Your heartfelt and warm memories are fitting for this time of year.

    Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.

      Thank you, Tony. Good to hear from you. Yes, I try to look for the silver lining. My parents will rebuild, and I’m glad that I can help them out.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
