FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — There were plenty of hugs and tears for nearly 40 Cape Fear Valley Medical Center workers and their family members in Fayetteville.
They were on a weekend trip when
struck their hotel. The families were moved to Baton Rouge.
A charter bus brought them back to a huge crowd of co-workers, family and friends.
"I didn't know that it was going to be so many people. I didn't know but I think them because I know they were thinking of us and praying for us," said Saundra Lewis.
More than 100 people greeted the weary travelers with a giant banner that read "Welcome Home Katrina Survivors." They even signed their well-wishes on it.
