    To the family of Gustavo Hernandez Rodriquez,
    This is to let you know that I am praying for all of you. May you eventually find peace following the loss of your loved one, Gustavo. Those that survived the hurricane received food, water and other help from strangers. But while, those who lost their lives rest with our Lord, their families need to Receive prayers also from strangers. May you feel His arms around you.
