Hopes and prayers for those in Southern Asia

My brother lives in Bangkok, Thailand with his son, and my mother and father are visiting him for Christmas.  While it sounds like their part of Thailand was spared from the brunt of the huge earthquake that shook the whole region today, I'll feel better when I hear from them.  In the meantime, my hopes and prayers are with those throughout the region.

Update 10:19PM: Brother and nephew and mother and father all OK.  Still waiting to hear about aunt, who is in Pondicherry, India, which has been pretty badly hit.

Latest update: Haven't heard directly from my aunt, but as I mention in my next post, we have heard from the community where she lives/stays that nobody is missing, dead or severely injured.  Thanks for all the kind wishes.

I hope you get some positive news from your aunt.

Glad your folks, brother and nephew are all alright.
