Look at this beautiful family.
That's Tommy and Melissa Lee and their five children. They're from down South.
I'm rarely at a loss for words, but when I asked Tommy and Melissa where they came from, and the answer was "St. Bernard Parish," I just gasped.
Their house is under water. So is the place they escaped to before the hurricane hit. But they got out alive and they're together. And they're grateful.
They headed north to Indiana. Tommy said he'd been thinking about relocating up here anyway (he's a Boilermaker); this is just a little sooner than he'd planned.
The Red Cross office in Huntingburg is helping the Lees out. We're so glad they thought to include us.
The smiles on the Lee children's faces as they headed out into the park were contagious.
And the hugs from Melissa and Tommy, along with the heartfelt "God bless you" from each of them nearly made me cry.
Good folks ...
... no matter which State they call "home."
