I have a friend, LeRoy Hartley, who is an attorney in New Orleans. We met about 16 years ago, when I working on a schooner in Bar Harbor, Maine. Several phone calls and emails have gone unanswered. Considering the chaos of Hurricane Katrina and lack of utilities in the area, I hope that yourself, your family, and loved ones are well, and simply unable to return the messages.
If anyone does happen to know LeRoy, and if he is well, please post a comment or send me and email. LeRoy lives at 1805 Esplanade Avenue.
Our thoughts are with you, and all of those affected by Katrina.
Update 2: LeRoy seems to be well and has stayed at his home throughout this ordeal. Thanks for the update, Jim!
