Lou and Wayne flood victims of Caddo Lake
Organized by: Rachael Meyer
Wayne & Lou Bailey Caddo Lake Uncertain, Texas Wayne and Lou Bailey are two of the most caring, loving, & giving people that anyone would ever want to meet. Since their retirement, rarely does a day go by that they do not offer love, help, or encouragement to others. They have taken in kids that were not theirs and raised them as their own, making sure that they had food, shelter, and an education. They accept their children’s and grandchildren’s friends as their own children and grandchildren. It is not uncommon for there to be 30-40 people to be at their home during Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner that are considered family whether they are related by blood or not. They deliver meals along with others in their church to the sick and elderly on a regular basis. Lou is always preparing food for an event or a loved one that needs it. Wayne, although not in the best of health, always has kind words for others and can almost always make them smile with his quick wit. They love their God, they love their church, they love their family, and they love their friends. After many, many years of helping others without ever looking back or expecting anything in return, the time has come that they are the ones that now need the help. During the recent flooding that took place in East Texas and Northern Louisiana, they became a victim of Mother Nature herself. Living in a home that has never been even close to flooding in the 42 years of living on the lake and not having flood insurance, as most don’t, they now have almost 4 feet of water in their home. Due to the speed of how fast the water had risen, very little was taken out to be salvaged. As expected, the home is practically destroyed and in addition to the personal belongings and contents being lost it will need an extreme amount of cleanup and repair. We are now asking for those who know them, and even those who may not know them, help them to put their life back together. Any donations to this caring, loving couple in their greatest time of need to date are very much appreciated!
