Default Prayers for the families of the crew

We have all enjoyed sharing the holidays with our friends and families, some of us from home, others onboard the HAL fleet.

My prayers and thoughts are with the HAL crew who have family and friends who were so tragically lost. We thank them for the excellent service and caring for the HAL passengers.

It is time for the passengers to show their support, respect, and caring for the crew and their families.

You have not been forgotten

The devastation is truly heartbreaking! Can't imagine what the crew on the ships are going through worrying about their families and homes. Truly unimaginable!

Our prayers go out to everyone directly or indirectly affected by this event!

In addition to my thoughts and prayers, I opened my pocketbook and put some $$ into the International Red Cross coffers. They indicate they are directing the bulk of their efforts into Sri Lanka and Indonesia. We feel a more direct link to Indonesia as so many of the wonderful staff we have known come from there.

According to a HAL spokesperson (as reported on a different website) not many of their staff were affected by the quake/tsunami. Those that were (or might be) were given free telephone calls from their ships to home to check on family. Anyone needing it will given an airplane trip home and back to the ship. The back to the ship might sound a bit heartless to some but what these folks need is the money they earn to get whatever is left of their families back on their feet in a safe location.
