We hope he shows up here soon. As I recall he was concerned with stroke like symptoms.

I also e-mailed Venice on Thursday as soon as I read Trip's original post. I've yet to also receive a reply and I am deeply concerned.

I am worried as well. Does anyone remember Jim saying he was going to his son's house when the storm was so close to NO and they were afraid of flooding again?

I have spent almost four hours trying to get hold of Venice. I'm at a dead end unless someone can remember his son's name. I even called MacDill AFB but without a first name, even they can't help me (assuming, of course, that his son is at MacDill).

I know where he lives, I know his e-mail address, I have even seen an aerial view of where he lives. But I've lost his phone number which is obviously unlisted. Without his son's name, I don't know what else I can do.

Perhaps someone local can pay a visit to the address. TC is kinda close by...who else is near NOLA?

There are a few websites that one can get detailed info. Zabasearch perhaps.

I can't get in touch with anyone who would be able to go over there.

I have tried several web sites to get a phone number, and trying to do so without signing up for a year. lol

I have another Idea. I will let you know...

I have left a message with a friend of Venices. It is Sunday, so not sure when they will get back to me. Told them to tell him to either call me, or get on CM to let all know he is okay.

I have asked the primary law enforcement agency that services where Venice lives to do what we who are/were "on the job" call a "welfare check." I am hoping they find no one home which would mean he may be visiting someone or even possibly on a cruise.

They will inform me of the results of the check.

Truth be told, both Luanne and I had checked the obituaries for not only Venice's hometown but even for New Orleans.

I'd reviewed probably a dozen funeral homes, called one Air Force Base where I thought Venice's son was (but they couldn't help me because I didn't remember his son's first name) and was going to call another tomorrow if we didn't get any news. If that were to occur, I was pulling out all the stops and going all the way up to the Base Commanders.

I am offering Big Time prayers tonight that Venice is alright and if ANYONE doesn't think we care about each other, then you damn well better think again!

My day is made because on this 9/11, we found out that one of our own is alright!

Thanks to Luanne, Henry and all of our beloved Cruisemates who care for each other as they would their own family. I am a recipient of that love and I, as do most of you, freely give it in return.

May God Bless you all!

Todd

Oh My God, I just got around to reading this thread. I am sending prayers for Venice. I am glad he was found okay. Prayers do get answered.
Todd I agree, the people in CM do care about one another. Family is important and CM is one big family.
