Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a great site and I have found many friends, and cousins that I didn't know I had and I cherish each one.
Thank you all for the beautiful tokens on my family & friends sites. I appreciate them all.

I am looking for any Sanders contacts/family from Blount County Alabama or any of the Graves family from Blount County Alabama.

I am also looking for anyone with information On Jay and Louise Ivery (Louise Thompson Ivery)
They have a son Joe who passed away in a car accident and he was married with a baby when he passed away - he has a sister, Pat ? that lived in Georgia.

You may notice from my sponsorship that I have a very warm soft spot for all animals. I believe that our Lord gave each and every dog, cat, ferret
and your choice of pet for us all to take care of and cherish until they take the trip to to Rainbow Bridge. I asked a good friend of mine, a good ole Baptist preacher what happened when a pet passed away, where did they go. He replied "they are all waiting for us, what else would a forgiving Lord do". I cried, just remembering how may pets I have had during my lifetime and how wonderful it will be to hug them and play with them again.(thank you Alan, I needed to hear that) Of course I miss my family that have gone before me, but I know I will be with them soon and knowing all the animals I have loved will be there too just makes it that much more comfortable.

If you have time, please visit

and a very special cousin
Martin Hasting Graves.

Thank you all for the tokens from everyone they are very much appreciated.

And to the memorials that I leave notes on - I know these things are possible - I have smelled my Mom's parfume 3 times - when I was at my lowest White Shoulders and there was no way that scent can be just blowing in out of the wind. I have only once felt my husband when I was at my very lowest - didn't think I wanted to be here any more and he popped me on my butt, lol he knew that made me a bit irate. I never told anyone until my best friend was visiting here from AZ and she was alone in the kitchen - same place I was and when I came back home she was white as a ghost and told me what happened and I laughed and told her I knew who popped her on the tail!! It was Vince.

Thank you,

Hi Debra,

Hi Debra,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for sponsoring Minjae Seong, Yeeun Yu, Miji Yu, Yeonhwa Lee, Soyoung Woo, Yeeun Kim and Seongbin Park recently. Because of you, the entire Danwon High School Class #1 is sponsored. That means so, so much to me.
The Sewol Ferry, which has been lying at the bottom of the ocean for nearly 3 years, is being raised now in the hopes of recovering the 9 missing bodies, including one of the girls you sponsor, Eunhwa Jo. I will let you know if they are able to find her and return her to her loving family.

I hope you are well.

Thank you so much,

Your friend Zina

Hi Debra,

You are such an angel on earth for continuing to sponsor the precious children lost on the Sewol. Seeing the emails this morning that you had sponsored Joah Kim, Minji Kim, Sukyeong Kim and Minhee Kim really brightened my day during a difficult time.

I hope you are doing well,

Hi Debra,

Thank you so much for the sponsorships of Gahyeon Jeong, Hyunjeong Kim, Eunhwa Jo and birthday girl Jeongeun Park. Your kindness and generosity towards my memorials, especially the Sewol kids, really warmed my heart this year.

I hope you have a beautiful end to 2016, and may 2017 bring you hope, strength, and many blessings.

Happy new year, my friend.

RE: Vincent Dawson
You are quite welcome for the visits Debra. I don't get around too often but I do try, especially during the holidays as it is a time of reflection and you realize how much you miss the ones that have gone on before us. We just have to keep our chins up and keep on trucking don't we?!! Happy New Year and God bless, Laurie
