It was Kennedy who came to St. Simons

Our causeway flooded early there was no getting of island. Families slept at airport, which was highest point on island. It's a night I will never forget. We where lucky considering how much worse it was supposed to be. I was 12 at the time.

Sorry Judy it was Pres Johnson and Defense Sec Robert McNamara who came rolling down around the pier to survey the damage. My sister and I were among dozens of people that saw them up close as they rode by. Sept '64? Kennedy gone in Nov '63, dear
