    We are Christchurch people living on the Gold Coast. We have heard from a number of our friends but are still trying to contact Rob Ferris and Jenny who had a property at Mt Pleasant. Rob is a musician I used to entertain with in Sage and Y-Knot Duo in the 70′s. Hope some one knows if they are OK and can post some more good news.
    We are praying and thinking of you Christchurch

    This is valuable information to those of us with friends in Christchurch who are keeping our fingers crossed that they are OK, but don’t want to bother the folks working so hard to find survivors.. Thank you.

    Deepest sympathy to the People of New Zealand.
    I am residing in Belgium,
    As the “NATO Civilian Association” Representative for New Zealand Retirees,
    I hope not to find the name of one of our member and his family among the “Victims List”.
    Seeing the damages upon Christchurch City, I am worried…
    The Peter Opsomer family reside 147 A Main North Road – Papanui.
    Can any one inform of their where about?
    I thank you in advance
