Bio Photo UPDATED JULY 8th, 2014:

Name update: So many of my friends seem to be disabling their messages lately that they can't receive proper credit for all they do for me on this site, from editing my pages to helping me highlight, to helping me sponsor pages - and if you're visiting my pages, then you're on that list, too, and so let's acknowledge that from now on! =)

This little angel has a BIRTHDAY on July 15th:
Robin Kolanda

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

When I first saw this little boy's beautiful photograph, I actually burst into tears. Gone too soon:
Parker James Wilson

This is another little one who was here briefly, but remains remembered and loved:
Judy Lynn Thomas

My greatx3 cousin on Dad's side, this HERO went down with the HMS Hood after it was sunk by the Bismarck; Johnny has a BIRTHDAY on July 10th:
Leading Stoker John William 'Johnny' Payne

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

This dear lady has an ANGEL DAY on July 16th:
Hilda Gross Richards

Someone near and dear to me, this young murder victim has a BIRTHDAY on July 10th:
Jennifer Lyn 'Jen' Andrus

This HERO has an ANGEL DAY on the 6th, and a BIRTHDAY on the 15th:
LCpl Robert John Slattery

It is almost impossible to believe that Vietnam was fifty years ago; I remember an uncle going off to the 'conflict' in 1965. This gentleman served and returned home to as uncertain a future as his past. Member Robert Fowler has a virtual cemetery noting many of the military members who spoke on record to author Bob Greene as to their is never too late to say THANK YOU:
Sgt. James A. Busk

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

This angel has recently set out for home:
Patricia Jean 'Pat' McGrath

This HERO has an ANGEL DAY on June 27th; I agree that his story is absolutely fascinating:
PFC John Farrell Eddington

This HERO was KIA during the Korean War:
Joseph Strubczewski

I'm listing two of my own relatives who are HEROES, if you'd like to wish them a Happy 4th; I never, ever forget the men and women in my family who fought - and sometimes died - for the freedom I now have:
Edward William Forest 'Eddie' Banks
Charles Joseph 'Chuck' Hilgers

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 HERO served in Vietnam, and returned home from that selfless choice; he was then a victim of homicide. Please read about him at this link, and say Thank You:
Richard Lee Cloud

Another police officer killed in the line of duty who also served in the military is this young man; Thank You to florida boy for both Mr. Cloud and Mr. Rauft's names:
SP4 Gerald A. Rauft

Finally, the sad trend of message disabling continues...I truly want to say THANK YOU to all who visit my pages, and if I can't leave you a message (Kathy and Buddy and Our Cat Family is the one I noticed tonight!) know that you are being sent lots and lots of hugs -

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

RE: Clara
Thank you so much Rhonda. You are truly wonderful.

The heat is terrible here, but air conditioning and cold drinks are a big help. At least it's not ice and snow!!

Thank you for all you do. xoxo

Love and hugs to you and GB.

RE: Happy 4th! =)
Hi Rhonda,

Please don't thank me, it was pleasure to visit your Ron on his special day.

We obviously have very good taste when it comes to men, haha. Was there ever a more handsome man than Errol Flynn! If he flashed that smile of his at me l'd go weak at the knees!! Now l've never been much for Shakespeare but Richard Burton could quote Hamlet to me all night with that wonderful sexy voice of his and l would be in heaven, with a capital H, haha. l would be absolutely thrilled if you could spare the time to email me some photo's, that's very generous of you Rhonda, bless you!
My email address is on my profile page.

Here's hope you and Gannon Blue have a great week.

All the best

Thank you
Dear Sweet friends Rhonda and Gannon,
Hope that this finds you both doing well and that you are staying cool. You are in my prayers. Thank you for the beautiful birthday tokens for Daddy and I know I thanked you before, but thank you for sponsoring him. I was raised on giving thanks to those who do things for you, and you have been so kind. Like I have mentioned before I am new at all this and have never felt such kindness from others. This site has shown me that there are still people that care in this world. I will explain later on what I mean, if you don't mind. I tend to babble a lot, sorry about that.
I will let you go. I know that you are busy.
Take care and God bless you both.
