Three weeks ago my new wife and I spent an idyllic four nights of a brief honeymoon at your lovely hotel. It was my bride's first ever trip to New Orleans, and though I had been to NOLA and stayed all around town, I'd never stayed with you. How bright the memories of those few short days and how devasted we are to witness the innundation of the town and the very streets we strolled only days ago. We send our thoughts, prayers and best wishes to the entire LeRicheliu family in hopes that as much will be spared as possible and everyone will be safe during the trying weeks that follow. God Bless.

Our hearts are broken to hear the news out of New Orleans - where my husband and I courted, married & honeymooned at the Richelieu five years ago. Le Richelieu was one of our favorite places in the world... hiding out in the bar over glasses of Abita Amber, enjoying the entirely wonderful hospitality. Dozens of mornings we commented that Le Richelieu's comfy beds and light-obstructing curtains were a hangover's best friend. We hope, pray and despair for all of the people who made Le Richelieu 'one of a kind' and if miracles do happen, we pray that one delivers for the victims of Katrina. Todd and Susan Smart

It was just two weeks ago that Ala and I were at our favorite home away from home, Le Richelieu Hotel. I called down Sunday to find out that many of the staff had evacuated. Frank, Joan, Herman, Michael, Colleen, Brian, Troy, Bobby with Novenas to St. Jude. May God bless you all and Le Richelieu. You are like an extended family to us. Be well.

It has been several years since our last of two visits to Le Richelieu.. We had looked forward to a return this Fall since I have been wishing to make a visit to New Orleans and the D-Day Museum. Now it appears that it may be a long time before that can occur. Our prayers are for a faster than exepected recovery for your hotel and NO, and that you and your staff will be kept safe.

We are devastated by the news! We are praying for each and every one of you there at LeRich. We are very worried about all of you and your families. You know that New Orleans is my very favorite place, and when we are there you are like family to us. So we are holding you tight in our prayers and thoughts. I'm trying to organize a deposit fund at our local bank with the theme "Flash your Cash", to be deposited with the Red Cross. Hang in there. In time, your lives will be back in your control and you will look brightly to the future. Till we meet again. With fondness, Lynda & Charlie (Lynsjag@aol.com)
