Bio and Links
Bio Photo UPDATED JULY 20th, 2014:

This young man has just set out on his journey Home:
Dustin DeWayne Campbell

July 28th is the ANGEL DAY for Della Barris; You may recall her name because she was the daughter of game show/television producer Chuck Barris. Della has now found the peace that eluded her during her short time on Earth:

In a world of upheaval, the passing of a celebrity may not seem to be very important, but I really want to post the link to the memorial page for one of my favorite actors, James Garner. He was known as an all around nice guy and a family man, and his biography is a fascinating read...not only does he leave the entertainment contributions behind, but he served bravely during the Korean War. Please visit with Thank You:
James Garner

This beautiful little angel has a BIRTHDAY on July 22nd and her ANGEL DAY was July 19th:
Janessa S. 'Nessa' Banks

Site friend Delita has lost her beautiful niece; Delita asked me whether she could post a poem of mine, 'Lady Lupus' on Allison's page to draw attention to this very, very misunderstood illness. I am very honored to know my words may help to draw attention to Allison's struggle, and although I obviously wrote the poem originally about my own health issues, from now on, it's Allison's poem:
Allison Leigh Wisenbaker

This is the memorial page to a HERO who has two tokens - please visit him with prayers and blessings:
Henry Frank Amaker

Another HERO brought to my attention by site friends The Houstons:
Private Joseph Michael Houston

This little angel had an ANGEL DAY this week, but I missed it on the 3rd; belated balloons and teddy bears are most appreciated:
Alayna Adair

This little one has a BIRTHDAY on July 24th:
Giovanni Michael Guglielmo

This baby boy has a page that was originally put up by a now inactive member, and so it is receiving no acknowledgement or visits. =( Cody drowned when left in a bathtub:
Cody Webb

This young girl is one of the millions of voices that madmen attempted to silence during the Holocaust; she has a belated BIRTHDAY on June 16th:
Eva Alter

This young man would have celebrated his 21st BIRTHDAY on July 1st:
Aaron Jerome Hernandez

Here is yet another voice from the Holocaust; this infant's cry remains long after ignorance and hatred attempted to silence it:
Clara Deborah van Leeuwen

Another young homicide victim:
Jack Owen Blake

Please visit my new virtual cemetery "Attention: Sponsored Children" - I am going to try to group my many sponsorships into more organized compartments asap, so that you will be able to visit pages which specifically interest you much more easily. I do realize that the list can seem overwhelming, and I am going over some ideas - for instance, new friend Hannah will be watching for birthdays and Angel Days for me right now, whether they are my own sponsorships or not. =)

I was asked to keep the link up to my brother Ron's page; THANK YOU for all of your thoughts and prayers for my family members. =) I just put a poem of mine on Ron's page that will tell a bit more about my brother's short time here, if you'd like to read it - it's - as Ron would have said - the cold as Chicago winter wind truth, and he was very brave to live through everything he did. Here is Ron's link:
Ronald Lucien 'Ron' Poynter, Jr.

This young man is a reminder to me personally of the conflict/war; James hometown is a bus transfer and short train ride from my front door:
James Floyd Grissom

This little angel has a BIRTHDAY on July 12th; as far as I know, the homicides of Jennifer and her parents remain unsolved, and you can link to their pages through hers:
Jennifer Renee Short

Bio: My son Gannon and I live in the Bay Area, but we are from Chicago/Jersey/New York; we have traveled extensively in our lives and are only off the road for now due to medical issues - but I sure hope to be able to hit the road again, someday. =) I am widowed, and I write for a living; I am very lucky to be able to work at home and therefore be with Gannon 24/7; he is seriously physically and mentally disabled, and most of my friends on here already know how I feel about Gannon...If I leave anything behind that is good, it will be because Gannon made me a better person. It is an honor to be his mother. We are interested in charity work and support Wounded Warriors, Make A Wish, Toys for Tots, The Huntington's Disease Foundation, The Michael J. Fox Foundation; all programs for poverty and below poverty level families in America; Feed America, Books For Inmates, and more. We also have a soft spot for animal welfare programs, and sincerely believe the quote that "If you want to know a man's true character, study how he treats an animal." Lastly, I hope that my work on here will answer questions, bring reunions and pay tribute to those gone, but not forgotten.

"Pray for the dead, and fight like hell for the living." - MOTHER JONES

Rhonda, Thank you and Thanks you to your Friends. I am delighted and touched at your sponsorship of Ben "Flash" Kennedy's memorial. Your visits to the memorials of family and friends brighten them and so do your kind thoughts. I keep you this evening in prayer that your needs be met and strength be with you and your family in the days ahead.

Rhonda, Thank you so much for sponsoring my nephew. He was only 9 days old when he died, so we have no pictures of him. Thank you again, Barb

RE: Hi and Hugs! =)

RE: Hi and Hugs! =)
Good Morning Rhonda, Your message this morning made me appreciate so much that someone understood Allison's battle. I googled your name and read some of your poems. Would you object if I copied Lady Lupus "with credit to you" to her memorial. She would love it. Needless to say she got little sleep at night and was on an enormous amount of pills, which she used to end her life.
She had two aunts that she was close to, myself and another on her Mother's side of the family who predeceased her from cancer. On facebook On Mother's day she posted the most beautiful note to me that she had two extra Mother's and what we had meant to her. Was not unusual for her to do that. I did not pick up that it was her last words to me. On the following Tuesday she posted articles on fibromyalgia all day and then a purple square with the words "The End". I was offline and got the call about two hours later that she had been taken to ER. She was on the ventilator for about 18 hrs but it was too late. She deleted her FB page so I could not retrieve the message she left me. Thanks for listening to me. Hugs Delita

RE: Hi and Hugs! =)
You are so welcome, and please don't worry about thanking me or visiting my memorials. Not everyone has time to do that. Sometimes I take a break. Best to you and your sweet son, Gannon. Just do what you need to!
