We grew up in Neosho, MO which is a stone's throw from Joplin. Our hometown area was devastated by a tornado last night. Joplin is where we attended college and where we went for medical care, shopping, movies, restaurants and dates. Joplin had it all compared to Neosho. We have relatives and friends who lost everything but their lives. We are thankful for their safety and we pray for all those affected. Unfortunately, the area is being hit again today by storms. Please keep our hometown area in your thoughts and prayers.
