RE Your Blog today
Wow!! What an experience today. When I was reading it I thought that can't be true. My mind wandered thinking could it be our Amanada's killer. Did you not think of calling the police? He had to be up to something not good.

RE: your response
Thanks. Yes, I did add it to my bookmark. It appears all the memorials for Amanda Blackburn have been one cancelled the other one merged. So all is well. Thanks again for all your kind messages and for adding Amanda's memorial. It appears she was cremated and ashes scattered according to one of the memorials which was merged with yours.

RE: Amanda Blackburn
Thanks for taking your time to explain how you research to make sure a memorial hasn't been created before.

I researched a minute ago just adding Amanda Blackburn and year of death and now I came up with two other duplicates, one just added today.

May I suggest since you created your memorial first, I would write Find A Grave and get them to merge the memorials. I would write but I deleted my memorial. Since duplicate memorial cause problems.

Thanks so very much for your kind help and adding her memorial. Just so sad. Now the Paris, France deaths. So much evil as you said. God Bless you. Barbara

RE: Amanda Blackburn
Thanks I did delete my memorial #154921967. However, before I created Amanda's memorial I searched the US for an Amanda Blackburn and 36 names came up, but not any for a death date of 11 Nov 2015. Please help me learned better how to research when burial is unknown. Thanks for adding her memorial, her grandparents are in our church, Colonial Hills Baptist Church, Indianapolis, IN

RE: Lauren
Thank you so much for your note! It means so much that Lauren is not forgotten. It was 7 years in June. I really do not know how time was able to go on. But taking one day at a time is all I can do. The storms still knock the breath out of me but I do know I have ridden them before, even while the pain is so overwhelming, I know I will get through it.

She is in my heart everyday. This doesn't end, it changes.I know to live every day appreciative of every second. I never take love for granted, it is much to precious. I don't leave words unspoken. I know my family think I go a little overboard, but they don't say anything. It is their way of loving me back.

Thank you again for you kindness then and now! You threw me a line when I needed it. I am truly grateful.
