Hello Karl-I'm trying to learn the history of Marcus Lafayette Respess. I am the great-granddaughter of Wash Respess (Marcus' dad) and the granddaughter of Clint Respess (Wash's son). If you have info that you'd like to share, I'd be so grateful.

FRIENDSHIP WISH: May there always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the Sun always shine on your windowpane. May a Rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you and may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

For A Friend
I Left some flowers on your rainbow page. Could you please be ind a leave a flower for my friend Cynthia Gillig Stone 75864427 her stage name was (ECHO VALLEY) you can google her she was in a movie with Neil Parick Harris go to you tube type in( Harold and Kumar Neil brands a Ho) you will see her. There are people that will not leave her flowers beacuse of what she did for a living. Yes she did not wear a seatbelt but the person that hit her was drunk the press never told us that after the fact. Her stage name was on her grave page but thanks to some snitches mangement took it off. It's sad that people are so narrow minded all and all I would appericate it and thank you

* Good Morning *
I surely missed wishing you a Valentine greeting, ao please enjoy this 3 day Holiday week-end. Thanks for sharing "Sanctuary of the Rainbow" with everyone. "Equality" is a powerful word & wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone kept that in their vocabulary.

Best regards to you & yours.

If you have time, please leave something nice for David Kisule Kato and consider adding him to the Sanctuary of the Rainbow. He was murdered just last month for fighting for gay rights in Uganda.

Sanctuary of the Rainbow
Hello Karl,

We have a mutual friend in Kate Duvall. She said you maintain a virtual cemetery called "Sanctuary of the Rainbow." I'd like to ask your permission to copy your "Sanctuary of the Rainbow" virtual cemetery and add it on my page so visitors can honor those of the community who have passed. Let me know if it's alright. Thank you for your time.
