Prayers for my dad, and everyone in Ian's path

Real Estate Agent with Arizona Elite Properties SA545073000

Well, we did convince our 92 year-old dad to leave his doublewide home in Venice and check into a Motel.  

His most recent text message- Bill how is everything going out your way in Arizona I've got me a hotel over here in Venice Florida and I'll be here until Friday noon time the hurricane is happening just north of here exactly where I have no idea but anyway my hotel room is beautiful I got a king size bed I got a wonderful shower a beautiful bathroom watch TV your name and I got it but anyway I just wanted to bring you update and hopefully everything is going well with you and I'll talk to you and you enjoy the rest of your day

He is one tough SOB!

WE ALL KNOW HOW ALL FIVE OF US KIDS HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE, HE IS A GREAT FATHER.  But we do have our prayer warriors going strong.

Good morning Bill. Your dad is a wise man for his decision to seek a safer structure. News out of Lee County Florida this morning is devastating. I am shocked.

I have been praying for all of those that are in the path of the hurricane and I hope that it will not do as much damage as people are thinking it could do.

Hope and pray all is well. Category 4-5 with high storm surge is really tough to ride out.

Your father was smart to seek comfortable shelter from the hurricane.

I hope his home is okay.

He left the Motel this morning to go check out his home, against our advice.  He has not checked in yet, but he is one tough guy, former Marine.

Have you heard from you dad? I hope all is well with him. We have friends in Venice and have not heard from them yet so wondering if phones and internet are still out.
