|Bio and Links|
My great grandparents on both sides came from Portugal & Brazil, had their named changed from Magao to Magan, & from Gago to Gage. My moms side lived in Connecticut & Mass, my dads side lived in New Bedford, Mass. When both my parents were in their teens, both families moved to Southern California. Then tragedy struck, my grandfather Jesse Magan died in '61 from a stroke.|
After my grandfather's death, my father started goin to a bar and struck up a friendship with the bartender, my other grandfather Americo. My grandfather introduced my dad to my mom, they fell madly in love, got married and had 4 kids.
The first 2 children grew up to be happy spouses and loving dads and are currently living near my parents.
The 3rd child, me lol, met a woman on the internet in 1996 from New Hampshire, fell in love, and moved to Massachusetts to be with her.
I joke with my parents, New England wanted a Magan to come back to Massachusetts. lol
I'm a happy hubby to a loving wife and awesome 9-year old child.
The 4th child, my late sis Jennifer, died in 1988 when a truck struck her as she was running across a highway. It was a hard time to go through, after 25 years, it's still hard on me.
I maintain 3 memorials on here, my sister's, my grandfather on my mom's side and my grandmother on my dad's side. I'm a stay at home dad, I view lotta memorials on here, read bout the lives of the departed, specially the ones who've gone too soon...it helps me in a way, to know many out there are going through the same thing.

My son was ran off the road in Sebastopol California in 1982, by an unknown person. almost 20 years later his spouse, remarried, was in Wichita and was hit head on by a pickup truck that flew from one lane, crossing the median, and landing in her windshield.
|Barbara Hammons Davis, Dalt's Mom||RE: hi :)|
Wonderful! I know she is pleased and resting peacefully!

I'm always just a message or email away.
This is my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I do think it is good to talk about what we are feeling rather than try to keep it all inside. There is something about sharing that is like a release.
One thing to remember --- my matter how old you are, you will always be your mom's "little boy". It is the same with me and my daughters. Lindsay will be 32 in August. Lesley will be 26 in August. They are still my babies, and always will be. I know it is the same for your mom.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings with me. I will write more later - I have to run errands now.
|Lauren's Mom||They were taken too soon|
I know he pain your parents felt. It is something that you can't really describe and it is something that never goes away. Time eventually makes the pain a little less sharp, but it is always there. My youngest daughter, Lesley, was living with me when Lauren was murdered. She was only 13, so she experienced some of the same things you did. There were days when I could not do any more than lay on the loveseat and watch the ceiling. Time became immaterial. It didn't matter if it was day or night. I had to go on, though, because of Lesley. My other two daughters are what kept me alive after Lauren's murder.
I am very protective of my other two daughters. (More than I was before Lauren's murder.) I think that is a natural instinct.
There are some amazing memorials here at Find A Grave. I have learned about so many people from reading memorials. It is a wonderful website.
I'm glad we have become Find A Grave friends.
|Lauren's Mom||Thank you|
Sean, thank you so much for the nice message regarding the memorial for my grandmother, Audrey Caraway Hill. That was so sweet of you to take the time to leave the message.
I have visited the memorial of your beautiful sister, Jennifer, and it brought tears to my eyes. It is a truly great tribute to a wonderful young lady. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs,
Gwen (Lauren's Mom)
|Barbara Hammons Davis, Dalt's Mom||Hello|

Spring Greetings to you and yours. Enjoy the new season with a sweet treat!
1 (10 ounce) Reeses peanut butter chips
1 tablespoon solid shortening
1 (5 ounce) can thin chow mien noodles
1 bag pastel colored M&M peanut candy
Melt entire bag of chips and 1 tablespoon of shortening slowly in microwave or in double boiler on stove top. If using microwave, heat full power in intervals of 30 seconds at a time and then less as chips begin to melt. You want the chips and shortening to be well blended and creamy and hot. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!! Immediately pour the can of chow mien noodles into the peanut butter mixture and toss lightly to coat noodles. Avoid crunching noodles. Using a spatula can help. Do this quickly, making sure the noodles are evenly coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto WAX PAPER and gently form into the shape of a nest, leaving a hollowed area in the center in which you immediately place three M&M peanut candies for the "birds eggs". Each batch makes approximately 14 nests.
You are very welcome! It was an honor to leave a token on her memorial page. I like the way you spoke about the rainbows and I think that's a nice way of remembering the little ones.
Thank you for the nice message that you left for me.
