Help Reunite these People with their Vacation Photos

A friend of a friend found a memory card today (May 14) at O'Hare. It contains over 800 photos of these people and appears to be from a trip to the South Pacific. Help reunite these people with their memories via social media!

How can you help?
If you know them, put us in contact!
If not, post this on Facebook or Twitter and help spread the word.

I know firsthand how horrible it is to lose photos from a trip. Hopefully we can reunite these people with theirs!

The Best Obituary I've Ever Read

A few years ago I did a book signing at the Hancock County Library in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. I don't know if I met Ms. Larroux, who at one time sat on the board of their foundation, or any of her family, but her obituary takes me back to a lovely day spent in a charming town -- one clearly with some residents with a great sense of humor.

Blessings to the family and friends of Ms. Larroux!

I thought this article in the New York Times summed it up well (and shame on the Cardinal who leaked his journals! But it makes for good reading...):
