Bio Photo September 12, 2013, my best friend and reason for living had passed away, my Mother Vivian McLaughlin- McCarthy passed away so very suddenly and un-expectantly in my arms at home.

It was beyond a shock for me. But if I have anything to be grateful for to God is that I did not see her suffer or cringe in pain. I truly believe Angels came to take her. My mother was there to help bring me in this world and I was there for her to leave.

Like I tell my friends and coworkers, the only thing holding me up, is the fact that she passed so peacefully and we were together. I'm being the selfish spoiled brat of missing my mommy and I find myself walking around the house talking and hoping she could hear me.

Since her passing the weather has been beyond gorgeous and perfect for the first 3 weeks since she passed, perfect fall weather which was her favorite season. I love & miss my Mom and know she is finally reunited with her son, my brother John and with all her loved ones.

It was back in February 2004, I had lost my older brother only 39 years old John McCarthy,Jr (9/25/64 - 2/24/04) which was a major shock to our small family. You are always prepared to loose an elder but never think when someone dies young before their time, how much pain you feel and how hard it hurts.


I have always had a facination with visiting graves and leaving flowers for abandon ones ever since I lost my grandfather when I was 5.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank everyone who are so kind enough to leave flowers & messages for my Mother & Brother - It helps us tremendously. Thank you & God Bless***

RE: Having Cats
I inherited my mother's two cats years ago. Catsitting 2 for daughter going to school in Belgium plus mine so had 7 cats at one time. They each had to have so many pieces of Pounce (liver flavored only) half can each of Fancy Feast (beef flavored only) etc. etc. I was preparing something like 30 small bowls each meal. My husband just rolled his eyes and shook his head. Turned out her cats didn't have to have beef/liver only. They were happy to eat what the others eat. Now I have 3 rescue cats.

RE: Thank you for remembering John
It is always an honor for me to leave flowers for birthdays and angel days. No thanks are necessary. You have a wonderful day.

I forgot to remind you of Patricia's angel day. I got her a few flowers. I thought maybe you would like to visit your friend, if you haven't already. Think of you often. Much love and many hugs...

I see you added photos for him, and wondered if you are related and/or in charge of this memorial?

I ask, as there is an honorary memorial for him in Champion/formerly Robinsonville, Wisconsin and I am working on completing the cemetery inscriptions and entries for it. I live somewhat nearby, and have relatives buried there and nearby. I am unsure on the protocol for entering in those who are honored and buried elsewhere, and can alter or do whatever is most appropriate in situations like this.

Thank you for your assistance and all you have offered to this great resource and record keeping system for honoring life.

This is the link for what I have entered for him in Wisconsin.
