March 6th,2006. New Orleans, Louisiana. Six months after hurricane Katrina devasted the Lower 9th Ward, recovery work, slow and sometimes grim, continues at what appears to be a snail's pace. Volunteer Chaplains from Victim Relief in Texas perform a simple ceremony over the remains of a resident of the Lower 9th Ward discovered in a house. The house had previously been searched and a body removed, however it appears the initial removal process missed some of the remains which were today placed in a plastic bag and taken away by the coroners office.
