    I am proud to say we know and LOVE Mariza. She cares for our son like he is her own when we are there....Mariza does a bit of everything on the island and her compassion is unmatched.

    And I am proud of our friend Claudia’ Ponson, who shared her place with 2 family and orchestrated their return back home. Hats Off.

    This is such an inspiring story. We finally left Aruba this past Sunday & had not heard anything about this situation before now. Thank goodness the people in distress were helped out.

    Truly inspiring. I can't imagine what those poor people went through, and then to have the good people of Aruba take them in.
    As an aside, coldsteel, so glad to hear you are home safe and sound. Maybe you could tell us about the experience of getting home in a separate thread?
