Lydia Thompson Armstrong was my late Mom's sister and a very beautiful and gracious lady. We are heartbroken and are grateful to her 90 year old husband, George who attempted to save her. Lydia suffered from Alzheimer's and could not help him save her. She lived a very full and glamorous life, having lived in Germany and Paris, France with her military husband and children. A photographer saw her on the street in Paris, and begged to photograph her!! George is now living in California with his eldest son George III. Our hearts go out to all the Katrina victims and the families that were affected.
