My father - Don Wierenga - spent two seasons in Pass Christian helping out after Katrina. He spoke of the area and the people he met with great love and affection, and he took many photos and kept a blog of his activities while he was there -(take a look at http://www.dad-cam.com/blog/2006_01_01_archiv... ). His experiences there really changed his life, and it seems he also changed the lives of some of the people he was able to assist after the storm.

Don passed away unexpectedly almost exactly 3 years ago, in April of 2009. I am still having a difficult time adjusting to a world without him in it. I am a master sand sculptor from South Padre Island, Texas about to head to Ocean Springs for a small job and will be passing through Pass Christian in a few days. If there is anyone around who remembers Don and would be willing to meet me for a cup of coffee or something, I would be very grateful to hear any stories you might have of my father.(He worked with the First United Methodist Church, if that helps any.)

Thank you for your time.

I guess I am disappointed that no one responded to this at all - even if only to say "sorry." My father helped so many people in their time of greatest need, but his experiences here obviously mean little to anyone but me.
Sorry to have intruded.

Hi Lucinda-

I suggest contacting the church he worked with. Topix is not the place for this, unfortunately.

I'm sure what your father did meant a great deal to a lot of people, but you can't expect others to value what he did. For all you know, no one reading these posts was effected by what he did.

Hope this helps.
sorry

I agree, topix is used by such a few.I am sorry for the loss of your father. I can say that thank God for people like your father helping us after Katrina. We would not be where we are today if not for people like your dad.God bless.
