May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way. May the smiles of the martyrs greet your own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone and death will be no more as songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.|

Angela Palmer, 4, burned to death in an oven in Auburn, Maine, in 1984; mother's boyfriend convicted of murder.
* Kaydence Lewinski, 5 months old, shaken and beaten to death, in Wasilla, Alaska, in 2007; father sentenced to 30 years in prison.
* Brianna Blackmond, 23 months, beaten to death in Washington, D.C., in 2000, two weeks after judge removed her from foster care and returned her to neglectful mother; godmother convicted of murder.
* Samuel and Solomon Simms, 6-year-old twins, strangled in Baton Rouge, La., in 2007; mother pleaded guilty of murder.
* Jaydon Hoberg, 17 months, raped and suffocated in Columbus, Ohio, in 2006; mother's boyfriend convicted of rape and murder.
* Chandler Grafner, 7, starved to death in Denver, in 2007; foster parents convicted.
* Prince McLeod Rams, 15 months, drowned in Manassas, Va., in 2012 during a visit with his father.
These horrific cases from different times and different parts of the country, like hundreds of other incidents each year in which children die as the result of abuse and neglect, attracted attention. Grisly details of the children's deaths generated headlines and sometimes action -- a person arrested, a case worker blamed, an agency director fired, a local law changed.
What has been lacking is a systematic examination of policies and processes or the development of a comprehensive strategy to prevent such deaths.
The Every Child Matters education fund points out the 15,510 children known to have died between 2001 and 2010 is about 2.5 times the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. But according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, these numbers are underreported because there is no national standard for reporting.
Improving the collection of data, a key to devising better solutions, is among the commission's missions, along with studying best practices and examining demographic and risk factors that may predict maltreatment.

Thanks, Ladybug. I do not seek to collect names, but will accept responsibility for my classmate's memorial. You did a great job on it to start with, in spite of my meddling with a picky suggestion.

And now it is complete, with his middle name. Dreat job; thanks a lot from Navy '53. My classmates have been really appreciative of the memorials inmy "1953 Classmates" virtual cemetery. Mostly all it takes from me is three clicks, one to open"edit virtual cemetery, one to check the box, ans one to save the change. The real credit is to contributors like you who beat me to creating the memorials.
