10 Years Later...Causeway Collapse

I know most of you remember where you were on 9/11

Those of us that lived on South Padre Island, Texas had a double tragedy that year

We Will Always Remember


September 15th 2001


South Padre Island, Texas

Our Home for the last 20+ years

It's somewhere around 2am....the phone a mother of 4 daughters your heart jumps up and out as you reach for it...

Awful Thoughts swirling around

Eyes won't open

Who is Home? Who is Not? Fast mental Recall......Come on..... THINK!!!!

Oldest is home

Second one is asleep in her room

The Twins......Omg..... they are at a slumber party!

OK.... DO NOT Panic!!!

Me Answering phone...........


Terrorists Blew Up the Causeway!!!


My Mind is Now Spinning out of Control.......9/11 had just happened......

Girls.....this is not funny!!!! Stop joking around and go to sleep......another caller beeps in.....


There were no terrorists.....just one barge that changed the lives of so many......



10 Years Later

I will remember the good that came out of that horrible tragedy....

That event changed our very small community forever.

Blessings to all the families and friends that lost their loved ones that day.
