    I was only 6 years old and getting ready to start the 1st grade of school when Camille Hit. My grandmother called from Newport News to see if we were all okay. It had been all over the news and we had no idea what had happened until she called us. I remember going to Rockfish Elem and helping my Mom set up tables with food, clothing and what ever else people brought in for those who had lost everything. But the one memory that sticks out the most is a little girl that started school the same time I did and how she cried and cried she had lost just about all her family in Camille. I can remember my Mom telling me to go and try to talk to the little girl and see if I could get her to stop crying and comfort her. We set at the table and colored and talked. We remained friends all through school but haven’t seen her in many many years.

    We just tried to get in to this event and unfortunately the place was packed. Alot of people were turned away. Is there any chance that they will do an encore?

    I WAS AN ABC INVESTIGATOR IN AUGUST OF 69 AND WAS FORMALY FROM ROSELAND IN NELSON COUNTY. IT TOOK ME ALL DAY ON AUG. 20TH/69 TO REACH MASSIES MILL DUE TO THE ROADS BEING WASHED OUT. FOR THE NEXT 14 DAYS I WAS ON BODY RECOVERY DETAIL. SOME OF THOSE I WAS INVOLVED IN WERE FOLKS I HAD KNOWN ALL MY LIFE AND ITS SOMETHING I SHALL NEVER FORGET.

    MAY GOD BLESS ALL THE VICTIMS AND MAY THEY REST IN PEACE.
