I have two good friends, who were just unbelievable.  One of them in particular had lost her father to pancreatic cancer, and she set up a website where people could go to for information, for updates, for offers of assistance.  And my other friend, Bev, she set up a foundation to channel—people just wanted to give something, they were desperate to help on one hand, and to give on the other hand.  So, at first we were overwhelmed with basics of food, or sandwiches or whatever.  It was just very overwhelming.  So, having, as I said, this one friend set up a foundation, to be able to say, “Okay, if you want to give money, please channel it into our NTAF.”  And the other, “If you desperately want to help, this is the list of chores that could be done.  The kids, the two younger ones, it would be great if someone could take them to the movies.  It would be wonderful if someone could take them shopping when they need new sneakers or whatever.”  So, those two really stick out in my mind.
