At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o'clock. Then, at that time Jesus called out with a loud voice, "My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?"

Today is Good Friday, one of the saddest yet the most joyful days of the year. For many years on Good Friday the weather has changed to dark sky's and the winds rolled in. It lasts about an hour. I have always thought that God was reminding me of that moment when Jesus left this earth. The suffering was over, the debt was paid for us. The Lamb of God had fulfilled his destiny and salvation was ours to claim through repentance of our sins.

Just now, in Florida, it rained and the sky was ominous and threatening. Lightning danced across the sky with loud claps of thunder. It rolled in from the west and as it came upon the house it was beautiful, exciting, and if orchestrated by Steven Spielberg could not have been more beautifully displayed.

The rain came after and then the glorious rainbow with the sun gleaming colors of purple, green, yellow and blue. God's rainbow with the meaning of "he loves us, he keeps his word and he will be there in the evening of our lives."

As I watched the weather roll by and the sun's return. I could feel it's warmth, I could feel God's promises to us as humanity. In my own words, once a year we have a holy TEXT sent to us. It says "I lived, I died and I did it because I love you" You have my number, don't forget to call.

On this Good Friday I am sending you my faith, my hope and wishing you peace and love in your lives forever. This has been my message to you for 8 years. We can rejoice in a new beginning because that is what he bestows on us each and every Good Friday.

Each and every Easter Morning we start again. With the Faith that he is near, The peace he sends in knowing our future is in his good keeping, the hope that our loved ones can share in this amazing gift, and the love that can transpire between families no matter how much strife and differences we have, we are all one. It is all so easy when we come together to make it happen.

Easter Blessings,


Psalm 35:9
Then my soul shall rejoice in the LORD;
and delight in his salvation.

Thank you so much!
This is exciting! I just went on this website yesterday and you so kindly sent me all these photos already. I was born in Bedford in 1943 and moved away in 1962. Still have many relatives in the area.

Joseph Fuqua
Wow, You did it! Thank you for checking and finding Joseph's grave. Did you inform the person who own's the memorial that the grave is actually not at the cemetery. That would be great if you did.

Thank you again, you're the best and good hunting.

RE: Joesph Fugua Memorial
Hi Again Darlene:

You said: Hi, You are very welcome. Also I remember reading on a website that was connected to that church website, that he is buried in The Fugua Cemetery off of Orange St in Bedford City. I am fimiliar with Orange St but I didn't realize that there was a cemetery located on it but I will check into that for you and let you know what I come up with.

Appreciate any help. You are on my "A" List.

RE: Joesph Fugua Memorial
Hi Darlene,
Someone else posted the memorial so that is the only information I have. A mystery, yes? Possibly if you ever get the time you could check with Mrs. R. N. Krebs, who was curator of the Bedford City/County Museum (or her predecessor). It would be interesting to solve this one. I live in California, so it would be impossible for me.

Thank you for your time,

RE: Thanks
Dear Darlene

No thanks are necessary, it was my pleasure as I love to place tokens or flowers in remembrance, especially for people who have made a difference of some kind in this world.

Just ordinary everyday people, who loved and are loved and remembered not just by family, but by others in the general Community.

People who have the ability to smile with you, cry with you, pick you up when you are down, and light up the world with a smile that comes not just from the mouth but from the eyes as well.

May the good Lord keep you and bless you

Hey Darlene, I'm back. I noticed that your loved ones' memorials have very very few flowers.
Would you mind if I put your name on my home-page for people to visit? As you see, that is what I use my home-page more. let me know, ok?
Your friend,
