    I am searching for my son, William E. Friend, Jr., age 33. He resides on St John, but works with a reputable builder on St. John and St. Thomas.
    Please contact his mother, Susan Friend in Cinnaminson, NJ. @ 1- 856-200-5309.
    My whole family has also been hit in S. Fla., but they are okay, as of now.
    I love him so much! I am hoping he is helping others. I just need to hear his voice.
    Thank you every one!-
