    We were the only tent campers in the primitive campground at Kincaid. We left at noon, then came back around 7 pm from an hour drive from Ft Mitchell after picking up some firewood and other supplies. It was a devastating scene RIGHT AT our camp site where Red Cross & volunteers had to set up. Some were worried about OUR inconvenience of having to tear down and move to another site. We met so many good people who seemed to care so much, and I wish there was more we could have done to help. But it was a great community of people who fought to find him. We admire that about the small community atmosphere. It was a small concern for us to leave, and the WORST inconvenience to his family. Our prayers and deepest sympathy are with the family in their time of loss and despair, and we have the utmost respect to the rescuers & volunteers who worked so hard and so late to find Michael. May they all be blessed.
