My memorials give me somewhere to bring my grief, and to express my wish to honor those who have gone.
I no longer live near any of 'my' cemeteries and Find a Grave is a place where I can come and be just a grieving mother or daughter, and others always understand me. My heart will always have a Rhysa shaped hole in it, which nothing can ever fill.
If you have lost someone precious to you, I ask God's courage and comfort for you, this is my prayer.

ღThank Youღ from my heart to each dear soul who has visited and left flowers and kind thoughts for my daughter,
Rhysa D Overton (Sep & Feb) -
my mother Thelma Norean Sides Benton (Dec & May) and others in my family.

i thank you God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Are you a friend or relative of someone listed in my memorials?
Many of my memorials are related in some way to me, but many are not. All my memorials, however, are made with very great personal respect and the most loving intentions, the goal ALWAYS being to honor the memory of some dear person.
I will consider every request for transfer.
If you'd like me to remove or modify a memorial I have made for your family member I will happily do so.
If you should wish a photo removed that I have added, please just leave me a note and it will be promptly and cheerfully (✿◠‿◠) deleted.
***☺ If I can help with aged or damaged photo(s) of yours, anything I can do is freely offered. Just post it on any memorial of yours and tell me where to find it. I download a copy and the original is of course untouched.
"Earth's fairest flowers grow not on sunny plain,
But where some vast upheaval rent in twain
The smiling land . . . .
After the whirlwinds devastating blast, after the molten fire and ashen pall, God's still small voice breathes healing over all.
From riven rocks and fern-clad chasms deep, flow living waters as from hearts that weep.
There in the afterglow soft dews distill and angels tend God's plants when night falls still,
Little children passing by that way
Will gather lilies at the break of day."
IN MY FAERIE GARDEN
"Just living is not enough" said the butterfly fairy, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
-Hans Christian Anderson-
My husband and I are rattie and ferret people and have for years adopted from the local rescues and shelters.
The ones we bring home are otherwise not likely to be adopted due to age and/or medical issues.
We give and get tons and tons of love :). Ferrets are soft and cuddly and affectionate and just awesome, playful little love bugs.
Over the years there have been 43 ferrets (plus others...dogs, cats, ratties, mousies, birdies, fishies, gerbils and degus) in our family circle, each one a beautiful little spirit.
Our lives have been and are enriched beyond all measure by the presence of our fuzzies.
Each furbaby brings something unique and special to our family, and we are so thankful for the privilege. You will find our rainbow babies listed in My Faerie Garden virtual cemetery.
I am a long time vegan, and all God's creatures are near to my heart.
*A wonderful quote shared with me by PURPLE~LADY, it's so True:
"Love is more than words, it is demonstrated thru actions. Love is manifested in the day-to-day occurrences of small kindnesses & spoken words. Love is lending a patient ear and taking time to care." ~Anonymous~
No thank yous ever needed or expected for flowers I leave - you are s☺ welcome - it is such an honor and JOY ヅ to "make my rounds" and scatter a little love❣ I am not able to answer every message but please know how deeply I appreciate yours!

|Betty Lewis||Memorials for my daughters and mother|
Thanks for the beautiful memorial for my mother, Elgie G. Metcalfe Waller, Sue! She was the best mother and the most beautiful person. She was such a peacemaker.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Happy Holidays and may God truly bless you!
|Rhonda C. Poynter & Friends||Hi and Hugs =)|
Well, you know the official statement by now - I will someday be back on here, routinely. ha! I'm trying, but my health as well as Gannon's just doesn't cooperate - we spend so much time at doctors that we get home, go to sleep, and get up and do it all over again. But you and Rhys, and your mom and so many others are in our thoughts and hearts this holiday season...I know it was a long year for us, but we did get moved, I got a new publisher on my pending book (my first editor and publisher went broke, sigh), etc., and so at least alot was accomplished during a very bumpy year! Hope that all is well with you and yours, and I am especially touched right now, when I can't be on here too much, to come back on and see you visiting River so often, Ron, my parents...you are such a sweetheart. Take Care and stay in touch - hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

Thanksgiving Blessings to you Dear Lady,

|Valenciaღ Angel of Mine 💕||~My Thanks For You~|
My thanksgiving will be happy all because of you,
For God gave me a friend to blow away the blues
He knew I needed someone, my heart to bless,
With the fruit of His spirit, He selected all His best.
For you offer a gentle joy, sweeter than peach,
Your goodness overflows, just within reach.
So please take these thoughts I offer to you
For you deserve the abundance
Of my gratitude.

|Lydia Young Noll||Susan Hulda Gilliland Washburn|
Hello, I am wondering if you are related to the Gillilands or Washburns. I have a very old photo that I believe is Susan and Thomas Washburn, but I am not positive. If anyone reading this has a photo of either of them, please reply... Thank you, Lydia
|Traci's Mom||RE: Token you left for Traci Fields|
I appreciate your beautiful, kind words.
|Traci's Mom||Token you left for Traci Fields|
Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,260 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is a little over a week away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much.
I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,
"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".
Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.
GOD, bless them all, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.
We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. I will try to get to everyone's site and leave a flower/token for at least one of their loved ones. However, there are so many of you, it will take me a while.
Sharon (Traci's mom)
|Traci's Mom||Token you left for Traci Fields|
thank you so much for your support for my Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.
I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.
I am so overwhelmed with all the tributes added to my baby girl's memorial.
Sharon (Traci's mom)
