From John at GemRite --

I wanted to let everyone know that I am ok and safe. I was hit by the tornado, and we made it through safely. I was in the middle of faceting a stone when I got the word of the tornado and made it to safety in time. The house did not fare as well as we did, but can always rebuild the house. I should still be able to handle emails and all of the shipping. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Sorry for any delay in my replies, but I am now back online. We will start picking up the pieces and keep cutting.

Thanks again, John B. 4/11/09

I am so very sorry. But, remember - you are o.k., your family is o.k. Sometimes people are not so lucky as that. A big hug to all of you.

Please drop in, when you can, to tell us how you are faring.

John I am so relieved that you and your family are safe. Houses can always be rebuilt - lives can''t be brought back. Take some time and appreciate everything around you sweetie.

You''re in my thoughts.

My jaw dropped as I read about the tornado. I am thankful that everyone is unharmed. That''s more important than any material item. Rebuilding will take time and I wish you the best in getting back on your feet.

Crikey! Thank heavens you''re okay!!!
Mother nature seems really peeped at the moment, so there''s tornadoes over there, we''ve got fires and flooding here ... and crocodiles eating children in the melee, as well... oh, and earthquakes in Italy...
