As many of you know, my daughter Stephanie Beth Randolph and her fiancee, Cornelius JP Rogers have survived the 2 catagory 5 hurricanes in 1 week, Irma and Maria, on the island of St. Croix, USVI, which is there home.

Steph and Cornelius were fortunate enough to be staying with a group of friends during these storms up in the rain forest with eleven people and seven dogs.  They had enough supplies and a generator to get them through but no contact with the outside world as they had no cell phone service or wifi available.

Since the storm, they have been living with no electricty and very little phone service.  It might be months before this gets restored.  A strict curfew is in effect so their time is very limited as to getting out and applying for various supplies while standing in long hot lines for hours at a time.  Some supplies and services are scarce.  It has been a very strenuous time both emotionally and physically for all of the Crucians.  There is a lack of resources, jobs, money, food, water, and all the things we take for granted on a daily basis.

For any  of Stephanie's friends or family that would like to contribute, CARE packages can be sent to her PO box in St. Croix.  Any monetary donations would also be greatly appreciated so that they can work on getting their car and home back together.

I want to personally thank all of you who have reached out to us with your kindness and  concerns.  Please continue to keep them in your prayers.  It will be a long time for things to get back to normal.

Please PM me for their address.
