Name: Valerie Lomasney CRS
City: New Orleans
Comments: Most areas of the city have been revived because they had an "engine" driving the progress. Either a church, business or an organization that was the heart beat of the area. Holy Cross will be that heart beat for the surrounding area and it is desparately needed as soon as possible. Any delay will cause those with the hope of rebuilding to rethink once again whether is is worth the effort. It is my understanding the church building was already in need of extensive repairs and a burden to parishiners. As a realtor I have many clients just waiting to decide whether to sell because of no Holy Cross or return because of Holy Cross. So far Holy Cross is the ONLY boot strap around that will pull the area up!
