Haiti earthquake claims Kansas couple's medical clinic

Jim and Sandy Wilkins thought the shaking was coming from the generator for their second-floor apartment in Gressier, Haiti. Sandy, a nurse, and Jim, 59, a family physician, moved to Gressier from Girard, Kan., 11 years ago. Just last year, their nonprofit Haiti Health Ministries Inc. treated more than 25,000 patients. Now the clinic is destroyed, along with medical equipment that took years to buy. Their supplies of medicine are buried under rubble. But patients keep coming.
