Good Day All,

Yes, Rick Nemeth was on the flight.  He is one of the 16 people who walked
away from the crash.  It is my understanding that he crawled through the
baggage compartment to escape.  Needless to say we are all very thankful
that he is ok.  My thoughts are with everyone during this awful time, and I
hope that we only hear good news about our friends.

I also understand that Rick Nemeth from Univ. of the Virgin Islands is also
on the "accounted for" list.

Anyone with information... please let us all know ASAP.

Prayers to all and their families.

Singapore Airlines has placed information on Flight SQ006 at the top of
web page.  It can be found at:

Included in the information is a list of Passengers and Crew, as well as
lists of those Accounted For and Unaccounted For.  Paul Blanchon is the only
Coral Reef name that I recognized from a quick survey of the list.  He is
both on the Passenger List and the Accounted For list.  I hope that
For means he is safe.
