Recommended Posts

im sure there a number of people here on TT with friends and family in chile, we may all want to consider them in our thoughts and even prayers.

my wife was born in rancagua chile, lived there off and on until she was 11.

all of her family other than her mom, dad, and 2 brothers are still there. we have heard from all except her 91 year old grandmother who still lives in an apartment on the second floor by herself.

i know of at LEAST 2 TT members from chile, greatdog9 and a girl named nickel5 who lives in central coast california but her family is all in chile.

im sure there are others, our thoughts are with are chilean friends
