This is my picture when I was about 2 years old. I am retired now.------------------------------------------------------|
I have created a virtual cemetery for the children who were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. They were on the second floor of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in the America's Kids Child Development Center. It includes the Director of the Center, 2 workers, and a visitor.
If you would like to pay your respects, it has been 17 years on April 19, 2012.
I loved Dick Clark, but I think it is a sad commentary of the times we live in where people are so caught up with movie stars and music stars, etc. Within "minutes" of Dick Clark's passing he had 700 plus messages left on his Find A Grave memorial page. Most of the little children who were killed in the bombing of their Day Care Center in Oklahoma City, have received less than 20 messages over the last 17 years, since they were killed.
Just a thought...

I have no family tie to Arthur Johnson, so if you would like me to transfer the memorial to you I will be very glad to.

I am still unable to create the link the way I want. I can add it but it is not highlighted so anyone can just click on it. Can I transfer some of them to you and see if you can create the link.
|randi evans||Link for Drue M. Evans|
Thank you for taking the time to message me about adding a link to my grandfather's memorial on findagrave.com.
He was killed in the disaster in Texas City 10 years before I was born, but I feel like I know him from all the stories my grandmother told me about him and the memories she had of that dreadful day. He was killed about 20 minutes after she dropped him off at work that morning and her life was changed forever. She never even dated another man and she lived to be 93, dying on November 20, 1998. I thank you for your dedication to the remembrance of those who have lost their lives from tragic occurrences such as this; they all deserve to be known.

|Floyd Lanny Martin||RE: Your suggestions to memorials|
It was a very good suggestion. I just can't seem to think of everything. LOL.
|Thomas R McKee||Texas City Explosion - cousins|
Thanks for the excellent idea regarding links to the explosion stories. They are my dad's cousins. I was 4 years old when it occurred and I can remember being dropped off at my grandparents as my parents left for Texas City. They went to assist the family trying to deal with the situation in the aftermath of the explosion.
My uncle was working the docks that day but took heed of a warning and ran to safety just minutes before the first explosion.
|Ralph ||Feriday Memorial|
Thanks for the additions for the Feriday Memorial.
His daughter Joyce Strange was the spouse of Ray Strange (my Uncle), he was a Fireman that day and was saved because his car would not start. My granddad was on the docks but was saved by taking cover under the railway crane that he was operating. Grateful that my grandmom was shopping in Houston but they lived on 3rd Ave. I was six years old and living in MS but remember it like yesterday.

Thank you so much for the links to the disaster information. I have added it to his memorial. I wasn't born for almost another 20 yrs after that disaster but I remember hearing the stories when I grew up as I was born and raised in Houston
|Floyd Lanny Martin||Your suggestions to memorials|
For James Clay and Jose Canales done per request. I and a fellow volunteer did a workup on the Texas City Disaster for the city of Texas City for their city centennial a couple of years ago.
