Does this mean your family will have to leave soon? I'm so sorry about what's happening Sam. I really wish we could do something to stop this madness. It makes you feel so helpless. I guess we can pray for your safety at least. I had hoped that things had settled down a bit for you since this thread went dormant for a while. I should have known better.

Hi Sam,
good to hear from you again, hope you're doing ok.
That's awful news about your land! are you going to be able to stay or is it more safe just to leave now?

So, I haven't forgotten you guys, really! It's just that other things are taking priority right now!
totally understandable, keep your focus on the most imprtant thing, staying safe. best wishes,

Sam,

I really don't know what to say, except I'm sorry to hear that. Will you have time to sell your equipment? What happens to the livestock? Something like that is hard for most of us to understand. We all hope you and your loved ones will have the time to do what you need to do. Our thoughts are with you.

Ed

Jeanie, DJ, Carolyn, David and Ed - thanks so much for your good wishes.

We're going to ship as much as we can off the farm and out of the house, into "safekeeping" (if there is such a thing!) then just play it by ear. Will keep you posted!

Sam

Good for you Sam. Don't let the thieves get a penny more than you have to. Good luck and stay safe.

I don't suppose anyone has heard from Sam, have you? It's been over a week since we heard from her. I hope everything's okay with them.

The last I heard from Sam was this past Tuesday, 4/30. She was OK at that point, but still dealing with lots of uncertainty.

Thanks for putting our minds as ease Jeanie. I know even if Sam is ok she still is probably very busy protecting her assests and doesn't have the time to go online much so any news is a welcome relief.
