I was aware of Darryl and Dwayne being your brothers; actually what spurred my search on the internet was the airing of Inside Hurricane Katrina, on The National Geographic Channel; Dwayne was interviewed, which caught my mom's attention.
I've heard so many stories over the years, and within the last 18 months, I've been wanting to pull together a small book of sorts about my mom's side of the family; this is going to be the jumpstart of something very interesting, that will be passed down from family member to family member.
I received your email, along with the notifications of your responses to the posts here.I intend on retorting to your email in great extent sometime during the week, so fret naught!It's just a matter of putting together a structured answer... and trust me, it's going to be a long one just to get everyone "up to speed" as to what's going on on this end.
We're currently in Georgia (40 miles south of Atlanta); Stephanie (my sister) lives in Metairie (she just got married; I'm the only one, with the exception of Dylan who is 7 years old, who hasn't yet tied the proverbial knot), and we make frequent trips to New Orleans.In fact, I think we've got a planned trip coming up soon.
I'll fill you in with details in the email.Just keep an eye open for it.:)
Thank you so much for responding!Mom's eyes lit up when I told her that you emailed me (I think she was ready to give up trying to find anyone over the net), and she has been telling me things to write to you about.I think it would just be easier to trade phone numbers, and let the family catch up both via the internet, and over the LAN lines.
