Pat Marrin, NCR Celebration Editor, has received word from NCR and Celebration columnist, Melissa Nussbaum, that her daughter, her daughter's husband and their children are safe in Haiti. They live in the village outside the Port-a-Prince area, and it did not sustain any damage. But many people in their village have relatives in the capital and so the anxiety and suffering is reaching the whole country.
